Tasting:

    Opened one hour before drinking. Clear, dark ruby color with a light gray-ruby rim. Boisterous damp earth, cherry, current and full bloom peony aromas. Smooth, rich, concentrated with a tangy and tart mouthfeel, solid medium body and a 150-grit texture. Tart cherry, ripe red current and a little bit of juicy raspberry flavor. Plenty of bright acidity, very fine grained integrated tannins with a long rich, fruity and acidic finish. WOW this was a much more concentrated fruit flavored Beaujolais and no where near as thin as we expected. We called it a Beaujolais with unique character and one of the best we have had in quite a while.
