Beautiful bright color. Rhubarb and wild cherry, earthy, cinnamon and nutmeg spices and bright red fruits. Cherry gelatin in the package, roasted red beets and spring strawberries.
The spice comes through first thing in the mouth; cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom, followed by fresh red fruits, more red cherry in the mouth, with rhubarb, orange peel and strawberry. While the wine is lighter bodied, it fills out on the finish with acid and structure and a lingering note of earth, cranberry and dried spices. A beautiful wine, with freshness, vibrancy and structure all in one mouthful.
This would work well with seared foie over a cherry gastric, or classic Peking duck or pork tenderloin.
