Cranberry and terracotta. Dry and tart. A very full bodied wine that is at the very top of the second tier of wines I like.

Nice. A little jammy but a good every day wine.

Not bad. Left my tongue purple though. Honestly bought it because the label was neat and embossed. Pretty decent drinking though.

Paired with a halibut steak, roasted broccoli with tahini sauce, and a lemon & asparagus green soup.

Dusty sour cherry bouquet. Soft taste. The bottle says it best “ bright cherry and cranberry tones with underlying dusty floral nuances”

Color of cloudy radek ruby. Nose is nice with leathers, hickory note, cherry, a bit berry note like dried strawberries, and a bit anise or savory spice. Taste is like classic Cabernet but on the sweet side. Smooth and silky, with meaty and sweet note. The zest and berry note come on the 2nd wave. Very much like a good Syrah and easy to enjoy. Also some tobacco leaves, dried strawberries, and leather note hidden behind the obvious flavors. Aftertaste is a bit tannins, bittersweet and medium long. A crowd pleaser for sure.
