This light, firm red offers tart cherry, spice and vanilla flavors. Clean, fresh character. Enough grip for food. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
Wine Enthusiast - 89 See more...
Open and downright fruity for an old-school wine. The bouquet is sweet and rubbery, while the palate delivers plum and blackberry along with chocolate and vanilla. Big tannins are firm but friendly, and the body is sturdy. Not sharp but modestly aggressive. Imported by Pasternak Wine Imports.
