Dark fresh berry. Light but not acidic. Great easy drinking. Low tannins

Joyful, intense red and black fruits with a hint of oregano . Succulent and fresh. A subtle pepper finish. Excellent pairing with crafted artesian pizza.

Black cherry nose... On the palate, it's more cherry, graphite, dried fruit, leather. Great concentration and a long finish. Very nice.

Downtown Spirits, $23

I try not to be such a G.D. Vajra fanboy but every wine of theirs I have blows me away. This is the best yet. Beautiful bouquet of cherry with a spicy sweetness, maybe chocolate? Silky smooth berry on the palate that coats your entire mouth with just a touch of acidity that I can only describe as juicy. Finishes with a sweet creamy slightly spice note kind of like a mocha. I'm still new in my wine journey but so far this wine is as close to perfect as I've had.
