Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant garnet color with a seductive rose petal green tea aroma. The palate is ripe with heavily extracted cherry and strawberry flavors with a slight astringency akin to pomegranate seeds.

This very generously fruit driven wine is a must with smoked game hen with bitter greens or wild salmon with a rich béarnaise sauce and roasted beets with a champagne vinaigrette.

My Notes:
