Wine Review: This wine opens with a unique blackberry like bouquet with scents of licorice blended in. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, soft, with juicy black current flavors with integrated oak. The finish is quite dry with noticeable tannins that are nicely extended. The more I drank this wine over time, the more it developed. I would pair this wine with meatloaf or shepherds pie. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Elegant and complex bouquet, with intense aromas of red fruit and notes of spices and flowers. Medium-bodied and well-balanced, with soft tannins.
