Deep clear ruby with garnet edges. Ripe and round and jam-packed with dark fruit, pulling a concentrated spice and eucalyptus ahead of roasted meat and peat.
Curvy and wise way beyond its years, sweet innocent perfume on perfect olive skin with a country edge of spice. Salty, sweaty beads flash sunlight and post-cigarette curls from the corners of plump crimson quivers–giggling a little–nothing this good can be kept a secret, especially with eyes dancing back out in silk dress and heels, across the room, you will NEVER forget the luscious dripping warmth, heady fruit and black flowing firmness–so young, and so filling.
In the mouth, instantly salty–completely typical of many Valle de Guadalupe offerings, big cherry fruit ripe and tinged with acid, tapering off to sharp tannin. Layered and complex, a brilliant Baja Meritage offering.
