Dusty ruby color. Aromas of huckleberry, ripe fig, spice cake, and cedar with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, captivating, medium-length agave nectar and marzipan finish with moderate oak flavor. A unique GSM with classic notes of the Northwest combined with an distinctive earthy nuance.
