Medium garnet color. Fruity, minerally aromas and flavors of spiced mulberries, stewed prunes, star anise, and flint with a slightly chewy, lively, medium-full body and a peppery, intricate, medium-length finish with well-integrated, earthy tannins and a suggestion of oak. Nice nose, flavors follow with a lingering finish.

Bright light garnet color. Fruity, toasty, funky aromas and flavors of dark berries - mulberries, sandalwood, raspberries, and fruitcake with a supple, soft, dry-yet-fruity full body and a warming, intricate, medium-length finish with well-integrated, woody tannins and light oak. Nice rich round flavors and the finely grained tannins.

Bright dark garnet color. Fruity, piney aromas of planked pine, red cherries, dried herbs - menthol, and gravel with a slightly chewy, lively, dryish medium-full body and a smooth, involved, medium-length finish with well-integrated, woody tannins and light oak. Rounded rich entry and flavors linger.

Nearly opaque dusty ruby color. Toasty, fruity aromas and flavors of earth, black licorice, and ripe mulberries with a slightly chewy, crisp, dry-yet-fruity full body and a peppery, refreshing, breezy finish with earthy tannins and a suggestion of oak. Round rich flavors, especially in the mid-palate.

Golden straw color. Earthy, fruity aromas and flavors of green nectarine, waxy lemon, and grassy leafy earth with a silky, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, interesting, medium-length delicate spiced apple and lychee, sweet cream, and praline finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A tasty, delicately floral white sipper.

Straw color. Fruity, grassy aromas and flavors of nectarine, apple, and grass with a soft, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light body and a cheery citrus reduction, melon rind, and earth finish with no oak. A dry, tangy, earthy white for the table.
