Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Had a β€˜13 still in cellar, grabbed a pizza and grabbed this bottle.. Ruby red with aromas of ripe red berry fruit with herb pepper spice. On the palate, the wine shows ripe tart cherries and strawberries with vanilla, leather and stewed fruits, aged for 10 months on American oak. Medium finish ending with earthy leafy notes and needs to be consumed soon, otherwise will be past it’s prime.

Vivid red color with aromas of ripe red berry fruit with sweet spice. On the palate, the wine is well balanced showing ripe cherries and strawberries with sweet vanilla spice coming from the 10 months of aging on American oak. Nice lingering finish this wine is meant to drink now. Good value. Tasting Sample.

Too vinegary, medicinal qualities. Not for me.

Delicious wine that offers up cherry and raspberry flavors that would go great with pizza and/or pasta. Great value and quality as an everyday wine!!!
