Dark fruit are present throughout the palate. Some bitter tannin notes as well, but they are balanced by the sweetness. Aftertaste is mild, slightly tart with honey notable.
Primary aroma of apple, with undertones of floral honey and cinnamon. Moderately sweet with acid and tannin from apples. Very soft palate tannins and excellently clean wild fermentation.

Honey is present throughout and provides a counter-melody to the strong flavors on the grapes used in production.
