Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild blackberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry and leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe red raspberry with integrated smoke and old oak. This wine will appeal to both New World and Old World fans as it is a blend of both styles. The finish is dry and its mild tannins drift along nicely and linger for some time. This wine would pair perfectly with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ripe plums typify the vintage, with soft tannins resulting from a hot, dry September followed by vintage-extending rain. A rich and spicy wine with soft, integrated tannins, this will be enjoyable in its youth and reveal mineral complexity with age.
