A boisterous style that starts out bumpy and gets better with time in the glass. The nose is foxy and medicinal, with strong herbal, peppery qualities. The palate is edgy and a little tart, but fills out with air. And the finish is medicinal and peppery. Expect a lot of varietal funk, twists and turns in addition to ribald berry fruit.
