Bright, deep salmon/orange in color.  Frothy mousse with smallish bubbles.  On the nose, this is very interesting.  Peppery (black) with light cherries and slight strawberries.  Almost a touch of cloves.  On the palate, there is certainly a clove note which is interesting.  Also cranberries and some cherries.  Very refreshing yet also has some depth to it.  There is a tasty sour candy note on the finish.  Good acidity, this would work with a wider variety of foods.  A very unique wine.  Although designated non-vintage, it is mostly the 2013 vintage grapes.  $30
