Current Price:

Purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose is nice with black raspberries, slight burnt rubber, smoke and spice.  Full bodied.  Light tannins.  On the palate, this is not a bruiser but certainly new world in style.  Elegant black raspberry fruit with some black pepper and spice.  Clean.  Plenty of depth.  Nice finish.  This is drinking well now and should drink well for another eight to twelve years.  Nice on its own, this would work well with not too spicy Indian foods.

This is a blend of 49% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Malbec.  Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cherries, slight floral/perfume note.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, this has nice black cherry and cherry fruit.  Good acidity.  Nice finish.  This drinks well with lighter tannins.  Drink over the next five to eight years.  It will also work with food.  Grilled ribs or burgers would be a nice choice.

Looking for a nice value in dessert wines?  This one retails for around $15 and is nice.  Golden in color.  The nose has nice pineapple fruit, with a bit of lychee and peach.  On the palate, the pineapple carries thru.  This is sweet.  A bit of honey.  Nice to have a couple of ounces on its own.
