Wine Review: There is a difference between “First Class” and coach and it shows up in this wine from R Wines. This very dark ruby wine opens with an attractive blueberry bouquet with a touch of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and elegant with juicy dark berry flavors and a touch of spice. The finish is dry and its tannins are nicely managed. Serve this first class wine with prime rib and enjoy. Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep red. Fragrant aromatics brambly, minty, spicy chocolate liqueur on nose and vibrant raspberry and strawberry jam. Plush and creamy palate of dark fruit, molasses, chocolate. A toasty oak and cedar spice finish.
