Wine Review: This ruby colored kitchen sink blend from Buena Vista opens with cherry and pomegranate bouquet with a hint of cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a strawberry and rhubarb blend with notes of cranberry. I also detected hints of tart plum and cinnamon. The finish is dry and its acidity, moderate tannins and flavors show nice length. This wine would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Count seduces the palate with enticing aromas of mocha, baking spices and blackberry. Dark fruit flavors coat the palate with notes of Baker's chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. This is a well-balanced wine is structured and has good acidity. It has a savory and lingering finish.
