|I love the old-fashioned label. Luckily, there's good juice inside.|
Beautiful, bright purple color. Aromas of fresh cherries, a little bit of brown sugar, and rose petals. The aromas have the depth of a great flower. This wine shows a perfect mix of lipsmacking acid and ripe fruit. The wine is so balanced, with medium tannins, and that acid carries through the whole time. Flavors of violets, red cherries, and just a bit of black cherry as well. Long finish. At five years old, this wine has found a great place for itself. It's very expressive and delicious, although it has the strength of acid, tannins and fruit to evolve for at least another five years.
