Vibrant red color with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, and violets wafting from the glass along with notes of toasty oak. On the palate, the fresh berry flavors mingle with spice notes and there's a hint of soft caramel on the finish. This is a creamy, medium-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life. Goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pasta and mild cheeses.
"Good bright ruby. Brooding aromas and flavors of plum and dark raspberry, with a whiff of pepper. Silky and seamless in texture, but with good energy and clarity giving the wine some inner-mouth complexity. Finishes with suave tannins and very good sneaky length. A very good value in this price range."

"Light purple; Asian spices, incense, lavender, and black cherry; 1-2 years of aging potential."
