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.
The 2020 Ditch Digger is lifted and floral in the glass, as dusty rose gives way to lavender and wild strawberries. This is round and supple on the palate, with ripe red fruits and sweet, sweet spice that saturates the senses, all neatly balanced by zesty acidity. It tapers off long yet wickedly fresh, packed full of energy and with a vivid crushed raspberry note.
