(2011 Vintage) Opening with a burst, this wine boasts aromas of blackberry and boysenberry jam. On the palate, rich, juicy fruit loaded with ripe wild berries, plum, fig and black cherry flavors. Supple tannins and smooth oak notes show in the lush, mouth-filling finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine include braised short ribs over wild mushroom risotto, pizza, and pork tenderloin.
Planet Grape(2013 Vintage) Warm, inviting and port-like in intensity if not sweetness, with notes of blueberry, mulberry, and boysenberry pie.
