Its youthful, Hawaiian Fruit Punch appearance offers elegant aromas of Montmorency cherry, raspberry and violets. The structure is delicate and juicy with ripe raspberry, Rainier cherry and dark red currant flavors. In the finish, there’s a touch of forest floor minerality with a pinch of fresh thyme. Look for this at the Eugene tasting room starting in January.
