Wine Review: This ruby colored Châteauneuf-du-Pape opens with a lingonberry and wild strawberry bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and bright. The flavor profile is a juicy slightly tart cherry, red plum, and black pepper blend with notes of cedar dried herbs, and cinnamon. I also detected hints of pomegranate and blueberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins drift away nicely. This wine would pair nicely with your favorite grilled burger recipe. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This ruby red wine is very complex and elegant with aromas of red currant, red cherries, black berries with spicy overtones such as lavender, thyme and rosemary. Excellent balance in the mouth, tannins are elegant and silky. Rather than showing just concentration, the wine is showing finesse and elegance. It will be appreciated with venison and wild mushrooms wellington, squash and venison tajine, grilled ribeye or fine cheeses.
