Wine Review: This almandine garnet colored Cannonau (Grenache) from Sardinia opens with a rich dark chocolate and black cherry bouquet with hints of cinnamon stick and malt. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, robust, and savory. The flavor profile is a spiced black plum, cedar, and tart black cherry blend with notes of balsamic glaze and green olives. I also picked up some hints of cinnamon and dried herbs. The finish is dry, and its flavors, acidity, and moderate tannins show nice length. I would pair this hearty wine with a Hungarian goulash. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright ruby with violet reflections that become garnet with time. Intense aromatic structure of ripe red fruits like cherry and blackberry, but also flowers such as violet and dried rose and aromatic herbs. In the mouth it immediately reveals the character of an elegant velvety wine, with good fruitiness mouth feel. The tannins are well integrated, and the balanced acidity accompanies the wine in the persistent finish. The wine matches very well with a vegetable laden lasagna of smoked eggplant, or a simple grilled veal chop on the bone.
