Well rounded and smooth. Can pick up the berry flavor but it's not overpowering- can still be paired with many meals. Perfect crowd pleaser for a dinner!

Dark cherry, blackberry, plum, a hint of spice, soft tannins - very smooth drinking. Enjoyed with grilled chicken with carmelized mushrooms & onions in a pomodoro sauce - yum.

Amazing! Spices and lush red fruits bursting with freshness! Medium plus bodied with the perfect blend of tannins and alcohol content. A beautiful ruby garnet color! Strawberries, red raspberries, spice and a hint of cigar smoke.
