Winemaker's Notes

Enticing black cherry aromas are set against an exotic backdrop of cedar and spice. Hints of coffee, chocolate, and rosemary join cherry, plum and vanilla flavors on the palate.

The supple style of this versatile wine complements a wide range of food from pizza and burgers to elegant beef, lamb, pork, or game dishes.
