Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored Tempranillo based wine opens with musty cedar and ripe black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, juicy and savory. The flavor profile is a cedar influenced tart cherry with notes of cranberry. I also detected hints of plum and cinnamon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite some time. This wine would pair well with chicken, andouille, and shrimp jambalaya. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Cherry red color with a thin terracotta edge showing its longer barrel age. Shows its mature black fruit, toffee and mineral notes. This is a silky wine with harmonious balance of flavors with an elegant and refreshing finish. Perfect for matching any grilled meats, stews or barbecued meats.

Organic status: not organic
