Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Negrette based wine is a bit on the rustic side. It opens with a little barnyard, cigar box and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. It has a very nice mouthfeel that is balanced, round and smooth. The flavor profile is a cedar plank and black plum blend with notes of crushed stone minerality and gentle black tea. I also detected hints of rhubarb and black raspberry. The finish is dry, and its flavors and mild tannins are nicely sustained. If you are looking for an Old-World styled wine to go with your burger off the grill, give this wine a whirl. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 is a real pleasure wine. A superb balance carried by an intense fruitiness. Nice acidity.
