Wine Review: This deep ruby colored kitchen sink red blend from Banshee opens with a black currant and boysenberry bouquet with hints of crushed stone, eucalyptus and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. We found it to be balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is black plum with well-integrated minerality along with notes of red currant, bittersweet chocolate and oak. We also detected hints of black tea, black pepper, cinnamon, and allspice towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins build-up and stick around for quite a while. We would pair this very good wine with grilled steak tips or Roy‘s rib roast. Enjoy – Ken, Karen & Stuart

Winemaker Notes: An enticing nose of pepper, violets, cigar and cassis. On the palate it is a mouthwatering mélange of red berry and plum flavors backed by earthy tones of herb roasted meat and fresh black trumpet giving way to a spice laden finish.
