Winemaker's Notes

With its deep red tint, earthy elements and dark flavored fruit, this wine is a snapshot of our picturesque mountain vineyards. It opens with distinctive aromas of black cherry, strawberry jam, smoked bacon and a wisp of clove. Evidence of highly pigmented grapes can be detected in fleshy flavors of black cherry, cranberry, spice and green mint. Well-structured and finely balanced, it finishes with firm tannins, complex flavors and spice. Truly versatile, it will complement roasted or grilled lamb, baked ham or dark colored fish.

Alcohol: 14.3% by volume
