Wine Review: This dark purple wine opens with an earthy and mild spicy blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, smooth, semi complex, has good acidity, and dusty blackberry flavors. The finish is very dry, tannic, and slightly extended. The panel felt this wine would pair nicely with barbeque burgers, ribs, or chicken. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Opening aromas of cassis, cherry, blackberry, earth, lilacs and cedar followed by ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors with black pepper and vanilla notes. A complex, full-bodied wine highlighted by lush fruit, and a long, smooth finish.
