The 2020 Ditch Digger opens with a bouquet of alpine flowers, followed by notes of raspberry, cocoa powder, and cracked black pepper. Densely packed layers of strawberry, pomegranate, coriander, and Hungarian paprika melt into supple tannins. A striking mineral note drives the lingering finish all the way across the palate.
