Wine Review: We recently had this wine at Le Lyonnais in Acton, MA. It was so appreciated by the group that we ordered a second bottle. This dark ruby red wine opens with a ripe raspberry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, nicely balanced, and gentle with black cherry flavors as well as boysenberry and raspberry influences. The finish is dry, polished, and persists for some time. This wine was perfect with my coq au vin. Enjoy – Ken
