Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored Beaujolais opens with a faint red berry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, very smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is a gentle strawberry and plum blend with a hint of blueberry in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are very nicely prolonged and well managed. This wine would pair well with a thick cut of prime rib. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Strong cherry color with a fuchsia reflection. The nose offers vanilla and roasted coffee aromas with a finish of black fruit flavors on a spicy note. On the palate, there are aromas of blackberries and pepper. A wine that promises to have good aging potential.
