Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple colored wine opens with a blackberry bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with a hint of black currant. The finish is dry and its dusty oak tannins sail on for quite some time. This wine would pair perfectly with a ribeye from Grill 23 in Boston. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fragrant aromas of rich blackberry, cocoa powder and rhubarb complement the robust yet supple core of bittersweet chocolate, French roast coffee and raspberry compote. Hints of graphite reveal a fine, lingering finish of baking spices, vanilla and sandalwood.
