The color extraction and eight months fermented in neutral barrels helps develop a dark salmon color with aromas of strawberry jam, peach taffy and fruit punch. The juicy flavor trail gathers up Montmorency cherry, pink strawberry and rhubarb compote, leading to a finish of pleasing acidity and lemon peel. Suggested fare includes salads and appetizers, and the wines are available at the Essencia Artisan Bakery in downtown Yakima.
