Wine Review: This bright ruby colored wine opens with a cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, smooth, and elegant with tasty cherry flavors and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and tannins linger nicely. This wine would be a great choice to pair with veal medallions in a brown mushroom sauce. Enjoy – Ken
