Wine Review: This wine is a terrific bargain and a lot of wine for the money. This very dark purple wine opens with a very pleasant blueberry and light cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, well balanced, with juicy and tasty blackberry and boysenberry flavors. There is also just a touch of dark chocolate on the back palate. The finish is dry, pleasing, and displays very soft tannins that are slightly prolonged. This wine is a winner and would pair very nicely with burgers or barbecue ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Dark and deep crimson red. Bouquet: Luscious fruit flavors of dark plums and chocolate with hints of coffee and toasty American oak. Taste: Notes of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty American oak with a soft and well structured mouthfilling texture.
