With a soft and elegant mouthfeel, this wine has deep flavors of rich cherries and jammy blackberries, followed by hints of vanilla and spice.

Well-made, with some clean blackberry flavors wrapped in rich tannins, and a dry finish. Not particularly varietal, but a pleasant, easy-drinking wine, and a good value. Should be easy to find, with 60,000 cases produced.
