13.1% ABV. For California this is pretty earthy/funky on the floral, expressive nose; blackberry and black cherry scents are fascinating when combined with flaky pie crust, wet moss, light licorice and orange and black tea scents. Pure as fuck, this beauty seamlessly coats the palate with dark, tart cherry, cherry skin, toast, dark earth and blackberry flavors. Finishes dry and crisp with bright acidity carrying the blackberry, pie crust, tea, leather and wet earth flavors. Head-shaking delicious, and the best California wine I’ve tasted in years. Kudos Hirsch Vineyards! $69.99
