Tasting Notes

Beautiful deep ruby color. Aromas of raspberry and strawberry jams, toasted meringue and nuts, pickling spice and cedar with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a plush, juicy acerola cherry, vanilla and roasted beet accented finish. These soft round flavors balance with a warm rich finish to create a wine perfect for pasta, meat, and cheese dishes.

Winemaker’s Notes

The grapes were handpicked at perfect ripeness and full of flavor then sorted and crushed.  Fermentation took place in small 1 ton bins and the wines were fermented to dryness.  The wine was aged for 15 months in small French and American Oak Barrels. 

This blend consists of 50/50 French and American Oak.                                                                                                                                   
Alcohol by Volume:  14.4%
