If your looking for a smooth wine that is light on the palate and still hardy enough to take the chill out of a cold northern air. Retails around $14 per bottle.
Smell is of red berry and spice. High berry flavor. Taste is of cherry, vanilla, and blueberry.
It is a heavier wine but it is smooth and warm. Doesn't have a lot of aftertaste which makes it great for sipping. Likely pairs with heavier dishes with lots of fat content.
This is more of a winter type wine because of its heaviness. Something you might want to drink in the fall, after bird hunting, or sitting on your porch when the leaves turn color. As the wine is grown in California its get both sun and fog which sweetens it.
