Nose of earth and maybe a bit of cherry. Not strong. I like a nice nose.
Medium body. Medium finish. It's nice -- but it doesn't seem like there's a lot going on. A bit disappointed.

The color of cranberry soda. Nose of strawberries with a whiff of funk. I like this oddness. Bone dry, just a little fruit. Bubbles too aggressive for my taste. Medium finish. Interesting wine.
