Wine Review: This wine was one of the best wines I tried at this year’s Boston Wine Expo. This dark ruby colored wine opens with a very pleasant black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this full bodied wine is very balanced, smooth, has a dry mouthfeel, and delicious juicy black cherry flavors. The finish is very dry, with fine tannins that are quite extended. Enjoy this gem with a filet mignon. Cheers – Ken
