Pale but vibrant ruby in color.  The nose has some slight cherries and a bit of rhubarb.  A nice foam with a lot of little bubbles.  On the palate, this is good but lacks depth especially considering the price.  Nevertheless, an excellent wine.  The cherries with a slight bitter cherry flavors carry over to the palate.  Clean with a nice finish.  And of course, a gorgeous bottle.
