Wine Review: This dark ruby red blend from Argentina was a crowd pleaser at a recent dinner party I attended. It opens with an attractive ripe red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry with notes of oak and black tea in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins show some nice length. The group thought this wine would pair well with shredded pulled pork smothered in a tangy barbecue sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep red with dark blue tones. Aromas of dark fruit combine 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. Enjoy with rich dishes and roasted meats including lamb, beef and pork.

Organic status: not organic
