Wine Review: This wine opens up with a mild, but inviting sweet cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is round lush, pretty dry, and has oak influenced flavors. This wine is not overly complex, but would match well with a meal like Veal Parmesan. The finish of he wine is slightly tannic and very dry and prolonged. Enjoy - Ken
