Better paired with spicy pizza, Italian sausage. Alone, immediate pronounced cherry and berry, medium bodied, subtle chocolate and faint sweetness. Interesting blend, would buy again. 2013 vintage

This is a great, easy drinking wine. Had with some nice penne vodka and it was the perfect compliment. Would be great with a top shelf pizza too. Wish I had more of this one.

Deep, dark red color. Light, but full flavor, with moderate length and lots of tannin bite. Tasted 19 December 2021
