Previously available for $33.99
Root beer on the nose with a complex nose of candied astringent red fruits, a bit of greenish watermelon rind, medicinal herbs, earth and a hint of lemon. Bright and balsamic on entry with refreshing acidity accenting the core of strawberry fruit. The fruit here is soft and gentle, astringent with the tannins helping to tense things up towards the back half. The finish is moderately long with nice raspberry fruit and a nice underlying firmness. The fruit remains very fresh and really has excellent persistence gaining mineral and earth tones with air. This quickly grows on me. 91pts
