Using 90% carbonic maceration, this blend is a summer red if there ever was one. Translucent ruby in color, crushed cranberry and red jolly rancher on the nose with hints of menthol and wet earth Smells like a laffy taffy store in an old beach town. On entry, palate shifts to more red and purple fruit with high tone accents like twizzler and violet. Tannin is light as you would expect from carbonic, but the natural tannins in Nebbiolo give it more weight than you might think at first sight. Finish has pop rocks and baseball card bubble gum, but lingers with Nebbiolo style of Marciano cherry and rose petal. Throw this one in the fridge and drink it year round.
