Chris Blanchard, M.S.

Candied cherry, Ludens, strawberry Jolly Rancher and tomato leaf in the nose. Very inviting red fruit and earth notes.

Cherry candy in the mouth as well, with strawberry and raspberry fruit flavors. Wonderfully balanced with forward ripe fruit, medium body and bright acidity. This has some nice verve and brightness, with a lush mid palate and a long, piercing finish. So youthful right now, this will be one to lay down to watch it evolve.

I would pair this with fish and tomato sauce, tortellini and truffle oil, duck and cherry sauce. Would also work so well with a sautéed wild salmon and pea and edamame puree.

Limpid ruby-red. Powerful, mineral- and spice-accented red and dark berry and candied rose scents pick up notes of woodsmoke, vanilla and licorice with air. Sappy, penetrating black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show excellent depth and focus, and notes of spicecake and anise add complexity. Becomes sweeter with air and shows impressive precision on the subtly tannic, strikingly long finish, where red fruit and floral liqueur notes linger.
