Wine Review: This black cherry colored wine opens with a smoky campfire and a jammy red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is Old World styled. It is medium bodied, balanced, very juicy, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a ripe boysenberry with notes of mild blackberry and old oak. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are barely noticeable. This food friendly red is very quaffable. It would make a nice glass pour option with a big juicy burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Blackberries and plums laced with spicy caramel and cappuccino flavours. A pleasant long finish with well integrated tannins.
