Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of cherry and raspberry lift from the glass, followed by notes of spice and pine duff. Brambly boysenberry notes linger on the palate as juicy cranberry layers mingle with black peppery hints of autumn forest. Medium bodied and fresh, this wine unfolds with a wonderful balance of acidity and lush tannins leading to a long finish. Robust and high-toned, this wine will drink beautifully for years to come.
