Colors are ruby and violet in the glass, thinning slightly on the rim. Floral bouquet with bramble fruit and coconut exhibits an undercurrent of dill to provide contrast. Opens with raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, with a touch of coconut. Finish is medium with berries and an interesting touch of mint and eucalyptus. This varietal is unusual in the Hudson Valley or New York for that matter. Whitecliff's version is light bodied and fruit forward but with enough acid to provide balance. It has more depth and is a more serious wine than its Beaujolais Nouveau cousin. Excellent as an aperitif. Pair with fowl or pork with fruit sauces.
