Wine Review: This ruby colored Grenache based wine opens with a mild crushed stone, potting soil, and gentle pomegranate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a loam, plum and graphite blend with notes of cedar and mild tart cherry. The finish is dry and it mild to moderate tannins linger nicely. This wine is a perfect glass pour option at your favorite bistro. I will pair it with burgers off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep red with glints of purple. Hints of red fruit yogurt, and with aeration fruits such as plums, blueberries and blackberries combined with cinnamon and white pepper spices. Combines amplitude and stress with a dense and silky matter. Mature tannins which easily pass thanks to the fruit and its freshness. Powerful, full-bodied, and luscious with numerous but not over-bearing spices finishing with menthol resinous notes. Pairs with barbecues. A red wine for all occasions.
