Wine Review: This midnight purple colored wine opens with a black licorice and ripe blackberry bouquet with hints of new leather. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused blackberry and black licorice blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of black pepper and black olive. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and flavors are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright ruby red color with alluring aromas of black cherry, cassis, black plum and spices. Smooth but energetic palate which concentrates black currant flavors and vibrant tannins, leading to a long and firm finish. Very elegant. Pair with beef, lamb, and duck.

Organic status: not organic
