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.
