In the glass, ruby red in color with a tinge of purple on the rim. Playful aroma’s of ripe raspberry, warm blueberry pie, mocha, black licorice, and baking spices fill the senses. Full bodied across the palate, silky mouth-feel, with a medium tannin structure. Juicy flavors of ripe dark plums, dried red currant, black cherry, and teasing spices. An obvious legend in the making! On the second sip, seductive red fruit flavors were pronounced with hints of blackberry leads to a long, eloquent vanilla oak finish. Bravo! A wonderful mosaic of flavors intermingled in harmony to please your palate, heart, and soul.
It is hard to find a wine with such quality and character at a price that anyone can afford. This “Wine for the Soul” is rich, luscious, and has an impressive 13.8% alcohol level hidden inside! Pair with Spiced Herb Beef Roast, grilled burgers, meat or vegetarian pizza, and medium to strong cheeses. Flavorful, balanced, jammy, and a convincing 91 point rating!
