Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple colored blend of Shiraz and Grenache opens with a fragrant and inviting black currant and blueberry bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry with notes of plum, red currant, and cedar plank. The finish is dry and its lively fruit flavors linger for a while. Mild dusty tannins show up as well at the very end. This is a lively wine that would pair well with a tangy pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy – Ken
