Ripe Cherries, Strawberry Preserves, Floral Notes of Roses, Earthiness, and a Touch of Oak. There is a great balance of fruit and oak on the palate that resembles cherry pie. There is also a light, refreshing quality of watermelon on the finish. Richness on the mid-palate is enhanced by floral notes indicative of Monterey. The smooth finish and bright acid begs to be enjoyed with food.
