Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored wine opens with an old wood and saddle leather like bouquet. On the palate, this with is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a cedar plank infused black cherry with notes of black plum and a dash of spice and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are sticky and linger for quite some time. This wine would pair well with roasted pork tenderloin with fig chutney. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dense, opaque, with a black center and a youthful, cerise rim. The perfumed nose invites you to a playground filled with aromas of mulberry and raspberry fruit and serious, but subtle, spicy oak. Mid-palate fruit shows delicious density and persistence in a framework of fine grained tannins. A great wine for hearty meat dishes such as rare roast beef or venison, Italian red-sauce meals and flavorful cheeses.
