Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored wine opens with a smoky blackberry like bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a dusty red raspberry and plum blend with notes of old oak and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. This wine is a pleasant blend between New World and Old World styles. Pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A deep red wine with dark blue tones and aromas of dark fruit combining with notes of black pepper, anise, cinnamon and chocolate. Lush flavors of plums and berries give way to velvety tannins and a persistent and pleasant finish.
