Wine Review: This wine is a terrific bargain and a lot of wine for the money. This very dark purple wine opens with a very pleasant blueberry and light cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, well balanced, with juicy and tasty blackberry and boysenberry flavors. There is also just a touch of dark chocolate on the back palate. The finish is dry, pleasing, and displays very soft tannins that are slightly prolonged. This wine is a winner and would pair very nicely with burgers or barbecue ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Dark and deep crimson red. Bouquet: Luscious fruit flavors of dark plums and chocolate with hints of coffee and toasty American oak. Taste: Notes of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty American oak with a soft and well structured mouthfilling texture.

"Bottles of wines aren't like paintings. At some point, you need to consume them. The object of life is to die with no bottles in your cellar. To drink your last bottle of wine and go to sleep that night and not wake up."
