Wine Review: The Rhone red blend opens with a slightly musty oak and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a very mild plum with hints of oak and light black cherry. The finish is quite dry and its fine tannins linger for sometime. This wine is food friendly and would complement quite a few meals. I would enjoy it with a gourmet burger with sautéed mushrooms over the next year. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Clearly a wine from a warm place, with its amber hues and richness of texture. The nose is reminiscent of morello cherries, flowers and liquorice. On the palate it shows an unctuous texture and is rich and concentrated. It will go perfectly with beef and lamb.
