Light ruby with barely-staining pink edges. Crisp bright celery and blanched peas create a voluptuous earth-bound beauty in an other-worldly conniption-fit of citrus minerality and metallica. Expressive poivre in fat rails on dirty album-covers translates to shards of vegetal and tannins seamlessly siamesed with acid and high-notes of mint and ester. No *donut-wine* here, this thing delivers A to Z but is NOT for the fat, ripe, jam & butter crowd. This is red wine for people who like real wine. A perfect coupling of *lean & mean* and California concentration.
