Deep garnet color. The nose reveals enticing blueberry, sandalwood and cedar notes. The palate is layered and savory, with approachable soft tannins and great length. This is an incredibly versatile wine at the table. Pair it with grilled flank steak, classic turkey, or a hearty roast in winter.

Inky ruby. Ripe cherry, boysenberry and vanilla on the deeply perfumed nose and in the mouth. Round and appealingly sweet, offering juicy black and blue fruit flavors and a hint of smokiness. Finishes spicy and long, with an echo of vanilla and good cling.

A robust, very ripe style of red wine, this is deep in color and packed with fruity flavors that tend toward prune and raisin. A taste of celery comes up on the finish. Though not high in alcohol it feels full-bodied and rich in texture, and rather heavy.
