Wine Review: This dark red and cloudy colored wine from Saint Emilion opens with a cranberry and pomegranate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and mild oak blend with notes of boysenberry and black cherry. I also detected hints of craisin and pomegranate towards the end. The finish is dry and dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ripe plums, black cherry liquor and dried cassis provide sumptuous aromas while hints of orange peel, toasted allspice, fresh cinnamon bark and dried tea leaf beckon. A velvety, Merlot-driven mid-palate slowly opens into a multi-layered bouquet of red fruit, toasted baking spices, truffle and coffee bean. An iron-rich minerality provides a taut, complex structure, while fine-grained tannins and firm acidity grip the palate to sustain a long and elegant finish. This classic expression of Saint-Emilion offers a dual brightness and sophistication that will continue to improve for years to come.
