Wine Review: This bright red colored red blend opens with a funky red beet and black cherry bouquet. It does benefit from some aeration and few swirls. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy and easy to like. The flavor profile is a mild red raspberry and plum blend with hints of red pomegranate and a touch of minerality. The finish is dry and its mild tannins linger for a little while. This wine is a nice everyday red offering. It would pair well with pepperoni pizza and lasagna. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Mulberry and raspberry fruits with spicy, earthy notes on the nose lead through to a juicy palate that delivers supple, sweet red berries and gentle spice. The ripe, dusty tannins on the finish and bright acidity assure balance in this value for money drop.
