EW Tasting Notes:
The nose alone gets you going, it's lightly aromatic, slightly lifted and extremely welcoming. Then comes a little slap on the palate with some grippy tannins and fresh fruit all at once. Is there a fairy dancing in my mouth right now? Listening to Rhye while drinking this just seems appropriate. Take from that what you will.
