From an Oregon winery, Peter Rosback can't sit still, so he makes wine in New Zealand during the Oregon winters. Deep ruby in color. The nose has cherries and sandalwood. On the palate, this is fruit forward with cherries and some cherry pie qualities. It drinks very easily on its own. It would work with roasted fowl. This won't get better and should be consumed in the next five years or so. Screw capped!
