Deep sort of pink/orange in color. Interesting. On the palate, cranberries and some strawberries. Nice mousse. On the palate, this is more than just pleasant but not mind blowing. Of course, neither is the price. Some depth. Nice cherries, minerals and slight chalkiness to it. Good finish. I wouldn't mind more cut to it, but there is enough. It was a nice way to start an evening. A Lyle Fass wine. If you don't know this direct importer - Google him and sign up for his e-mails. Great wine at reasonable prices.
