Medium deep garnet. Bursting with fresh fruit: red and black currants, cranberries, cherries.. I also smell and taste some blood orange fruit and peel but the dominant trait is crushed black pepper. Very peppery. Good acid structure and a complex finish featuring peppery spice and earth.
The $36 price tag ($28 for Wine Club members) is relatively low for red wines from Leelanau and Old Mission but may not compete with prices for Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch wines from their native Austria.
