Winemaker's Notes

Lush black cherry and plum aromas blossom in the nose. A tannic backbone carries the tender entry of this wine across the palate like velvet, with traces of cedar anchoring a long finish of dried cranberry and cassis. Pair with grilled quail served in a veal stock reduction flavored with dried cranberries or a selection of mild cheeses.
