Even before tasting, this blend draws attention for its limpid, fulsome texture in the glass, like simple syrup. The bouquet is unusual, with a strong center of hibiscus and freshly cut nectarine. That lightness transforms into cherry cheesecake and mandarin orange, altogether a rare flavor trip for these grapes. There are contrasts of light and dark, sharp and rich throughout – quite an experience!
