Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild vanilla oak and leather bouquet with hints of earthy blackberry. On the palate, it is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a gentle oak and mild raspberry blend with a touch of soft black cherry. The finish is dry and its sticky moderate tannins linger for quite sometime. This wine would pair well with Theresa’s meatloaf or spaghetti and meatballs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Intense, fresh, and fruity bouquet with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. Gentle, full and soft, with surprising length. Ideal with wild game and aged cheeses.
