Brighly perfumed of rich strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb and watermelon.  A sip is juicy, mouth-filling and tasting of dark cherries and other red berry fruits, pomegranate and Granny Smith apple.  The finish is long and fresh.

Critic's Rating

Delicate aromas of watermelon, strawberry and raspberry can be coaxed on the nose. It’s graceful, even elegant on the palate with a perfectly balanced river of pure ambrosia on the palate showcasing ripe black cherry, racy pomegranate and sweet-tinged watermelon adorned with notions of apple and pear. This is value packed, medium-bodied with good mouthfeel and plenty to like on the crisp, refreshing finish an aftertaste. Pour on its own or pair with a charcuterie board or pan-seared Atlantic salmon or potato salad adorned with chunks of smoked salmon.
