Wine Review: This dark ruby colored CDP opens with a musty cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth, and elegant with juicy cherry flavors. There is also a noted oak infusion throughout this wine. The finish is quite dry and nicely extended. This wine would pair very well with a NY strip steak smothered in sautéed mushrooms and a melted butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken
