Dark purple color but a clear wine and a bit lighter than I anticipated. Really strong and very nice fruit aroma, but I couldn't really pinpoint the aroma. Some sort of berry or currant it seemed. Well balanced - the fruit was strong but not overpowering. Medium finish. I don't recall having too many wines that use the natural yeast from grapes the way Carol Shelton does. I thought it was an interesting idea.
