Intensely aromatic on the nose with scents of dried herbs, bramble and pulpy, overripe fruit, this dry, medium-bodied Virginia red is surprisingly fresh on the palate with bright sour cherry flavors. There are some green, vegetal notes throughout, but lively acidity helps to keep it fresh and clean.
