Tasting notes: pours a medium-light pink with extreme clarity. A very strawberry-red field berry fruity and inviting nose. Upon sipping, it comes off as dry, notes of strawberry,mild tinging spice, alcohol warmth in the mids, medium-high sour (7/10) acidity near the finish, and a flat carry. Not my type of wine.
