With its beloved style and grace, the 2016 Mad Crush leaps from the glass with a mix of fresh fruits and dry, earthy tones. A wine of virility yet unashamed of it’s elegant and softer edges. White pepper highlights fruit notes like fresh red cherries, cranberries, and candied watermelon, but a savory undertone bolsters tones of cola, lightly toasted cedar, and anise. A silky smooth entry with concentrated raspberry notes yield to coarse, drying tannins on the mid-palate that create layers of boysenberry pie, dark chocolate, and more lingering currants. A mouthwatering acidity balances the drying tannins and bolsters candied flavors of strawberries that carry into a long and dry finish. Unassuming and persistent, a gentle breeze in in your garden of life.
