Such a great lil wine. Ripe cherries, pops of raspberry, followed by waves of tobacco and sweet-wood smoke. Bright acidity, backed by just the right amount of structure.

Deep red with dark edges And aromas of red fruit and earthy spices. On the palate tart red fruits and plum flavors with bits of cacao and herb notes. Balanced acidity and tannins shows some toasty oak on the lingering finish. Nice, easy drinking!

Nice limestone and dried cherry on nose, no structure but I really like how balanced it is. A winner here in National Harbor.
