Tepid red-purple pour, thin tan ring for a head. Nose is vinous berry, ldark chocolate, the acetic adding a nice refreshing tough to a very dessert like, integrated showing. Body is appropriately thin, but sweet vinous notes drop in favor of flatter finish, more acetic notes, and less rich, more sugary chocolate.
