Vibrant, fruity aromas of red cherry concentrate and bubble gum powder ride over a sweet sawdust note on the nose. The palate shows a bit of depth and darkness, with tart black plum and grippy plum skin on a medium-bodied palate. Sandy, yet structured tannins support. A dusty vanilla finish rounds out this approachable red.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
