Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The color is a see-thru cherry red. The nose is maraschino cherries, a light floral edge, a hit of spice and fresh strawberry. This is a slightly sweet wine, not sugar sweet, but nectar sweet. It starts with ripe black cherry, raspberry, licorice and cranberry. It transitions in the mid palate to a soft splash of pepper, along with blueberry. The tannins are soft and the acidity is light. The finish is fairly full and lengthy.

    Nose of cherry and black pepper. Smooth drinking with a buttery mouthfeel. Light tannins, but light taste.

    Rich berry tasting and very mellow. Enjoyed it with spaghetti and meatballs.
