Wine Review: This wine opens with an oaky and musty like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is dry, round, and has cool sensations. It displays black cherry and menthol like flavors. The finish is quite dry and lingers for a little while. This is a wine that would pair perfectly with comfort food like beef stew or sheppard’s pie. Enjoy - Ken
