Wine Review: We recently tried this Very Good offering at a wine tasting party that we attended. This dark ruby wine opens with a fragrant blackberry liqueur like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is round, juicy, with lush and extracted blackberry like flavors with a touch of cherry on the back palate. The finish is quite dry and has soft tannins that linger slightly. This wine is a nice everyday red that would pair well with burgers off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dense purple colour and an almost black appearance. Dark chocolate, anise and allspice dominate the nose, supported by hints of French oak, cherries and coffee. A fresh and juicy mid-palate shrouds tannin and length. The wine has flavours of fresh cut plums and licorice with hints of blackberry and espresso. A long and lingering finish.
