Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with a black raspberry bouquet with hints of black pepper and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is an oak and black raspberry blend with hints of black pepper and black currant. The finish is dry and displays mild tannins. This is a pleasant and Good everyday offering. Serve it with a juicy burger. Enjoy - Ken
