From the folks at Cayuse. Deep garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, strawberries, slight earthiness and a hint of floral notes. Medium bodied. On the palate, the black cherry and strawberries come thru big time. A slight dry earthiness underneath. This is ripe but not over done. Good finish. This could use a few years to develop more and should drink well for eight to ten after that. Nice on its own, with age it will work well with roasted fowl.
