(2013 Vintage) This wine packs so much vibrant fruit, you’ll think the Kool-Aid Man just burst through the wall and punched you in the face! Jam packed with crushed strawberry and dark summer fruit (plum, blackberry, cherry) with a velvety full mouth feel. Vanilla and baking spices round out the finish with a slight hint of tobacco.
