Tasting Note:May 21, 2016

Third wine tasted at Afton Mountain Vineyards. Light garnet red. A little dirty with some leafy notes. Lots of red cherries with some savory notes and wood undertones. Moderate tannins (6/10) with a little bit too much acidity. Definitely needs some time to mellow out. Moderate body with a moderate finish.
