Wine Review: This deep purple wine opens with a musty blackberry bouquet with hints of black pepper. On the palate, the wine is round, smooth, and has very forward spicy blackberry flavors. The finish is very dry and a bit prolonged. This is a classic beef stew wine to be enjoyed this fall and winter. It’s a good bargain as well. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Rich staining magenta ruby red, cellar bright Palate: Raspberry, black cherry liqueur fruit intermixed with spice. Small hints of white pepper and straps of licorice. Tightly knit tannin structure.
