I love this wine!! It has a rich flavor of berries and earth. The smell instantly tells your taste buds to prepare for the inital burst of yummy tartie-sweetiness. One taste and your hooked. You will be won over with the lasting warmeth of this brillant red wine. We used it to make the Beef Andy Warhol recipe for Valentine's Day. It was spectacular and a perfect pairing for a flawless wine. Enjoy!
