Brown brick red color. Aromas and flavors of boysenberry chutney, pickled beets and carrots, chocolate mint, and eucalyptus honeycomb with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, charming, long finish with impressions of blueberry cobbler, alpine herbal lozenge, and cedar pencil shavings with dusty, earthy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A rich and spicy GSM with nice layers of herbal undertones and a fine, balanced mouthfeel.
