Color: Deep garnet. (3.0) Bouquet: Tart cherry with excellent acidity, but lacking complexity. (2.5) Body: Light heavyweight with excellent acidity and fruit. (3.0) Flavor: Tart cherry with intensity and a touch of candy. (3.0) Finish: Parallels flavor with length, needs time to smooth. (3.0)
Overall: Solid with a lot of tart cherry fruit propelled by acidity, but lacks the secondary nuances that would make it likely to improve with time. (14.5)
