Wine Review: This very dark purple wine opens with a traditional nose of dark berries. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, soft, and easy to drink with dusty black cherry flavors. The finish is quite dry and its tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair very well with duck. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Very complexly layered spice and black fruits, pretty blueberry fragrance, Creamy oak, a bit of vanilla, dark chocolate, brown spices-nutmeg/cinnamon. Rich in mouth, good structure for aging, a bit chewy in its youth.
