Tasting notes:

The 2015 Transverse has developed beautifully in the bottle. The aromas are a mix of sharp and round, with baked apple, blackberry and baby aspirin balanced by tangerine, pine resin, and a slight minty note. The palate is luxuriously rich and full with more of those darker fruits but balanced by some bright fruit flavors of lychee and cranberry. This is a wonderfully complex wine that finishes with nice round tannins that stretch this finish out for a long, fun ride. (Updated 4.5.2019 - Alan)

Wine Profile
Terroirist.com: Light purple color. Nose of sweet raspberries, cherries and strawberries, with healthy dollops of violets, rose petals and sweet herbs. Medium-bodied, brisk acidity, juicy and lively red fruits (cherries and raspberries). Notes of savory spices, mesquite barbecue, rose petals and cola add complexity. This is a ton of fun, shows a lot of personality, exuberant but balanced and lively. A blend of fruit from Choate Vineyard, Saltonstall Vineyard and Starscape Vineyard. 13.4% alcohol. (90 points IJB)
