Deeply pitched and complex on the nose, quite forward, offering notes of pineapple custard, mint, allspice, and baked lemon. Medium to full bodied on the palate, there's a lot of richness here, but the overall feel is one of lightness. A beautiful sweet-sour balance provides interest, but this lacks depth of flavor on the palate.
Distinctive and complex, this appears like a hypothetical cross of Poulsard, Cab Franc and Gamay, brimming with stewed red fruit, spice, cedar, and tobacco aromas. Medium bodied, juicy and nicely delineated with ripe tannins and medium to medium+ acid providing a stage for red fruit, cedar and spice flavors.
