Bing cherry and sweet strawberry, with hints of leafy herbs, come through on the nose. On the palate, rich red fruit flavors, primarily raspberry and cherry, lead, followed by cinnamon, and a touch of birch. Food friendly and fruit forward, with a lovely mouth-feel, this is a very pretty glass of wine. Drink with sage-rubbed roast pork. Recommended. 89 points. DBH
