From Alder Yarrow - July, 2015
Dark garnet in color, this wine smells of graphite, cedar, and cherry. In the mouth, bright cedar and cherry flavors have a nice forest floor earthiness to them as well as a snappy, juicy bounce, thanks to excellent acidity. Dried herbs and a hint of marijuana resin linger in the finish. Excellent!
