2020 Ava Lu
The apparent freshness of color in this wine is very inviting. It is polished and ruby toned. The fruit matches the visual appeal of this wine—quite young, and very vibrant. This wine pushes a heady mixture of raspberry, perfectly ripe strawberry, red currant and rosehip. The attack is sweet and tense, flooding your senses with fruit. Black cherry, raspberry with stems still attached, strawberry with crème, and coca. There is lovely iron minerality combined with dried hibiscus and fine dusty tannins. This wine, like its namesake, is youthful and beautiful, and is just beginning to express its lovely character.
