2021 This Is Red Pet NatOsmote
A cold bottle slowly releases bubbles just threatening to overflow before you pour that first glass of opaque, dark purple wine rimmed with fuschia bubbles. Aromas of both blue and red fruits, like plums alongside red berries. A hint of milk chocolate with a woodsy top note. Rich flavor with blue violet notes before chalky tannins assert the finish.

Wine finishes ferment in barrels for two months then is racked back to tank. Cabernet Franc juice is added immediately before bottling. Bottled under crown cap to preserve natural carbonation.
