WineO Mark Review

This wine has aromas of dark fruits, pipe tobacco, mushrooms, leather, and spices.

It’s well-balanced, well-rounded, and rich in flavors of ripe fruits including blackberries, plums, boysenberries, cranberries, and pomegranate. There are also notes of spices, leather, oak, vanilla, and forest floor which creates an elegant and lingering finish.

It’s an everyday easy drinking wine for those who love fruit forward red wines.
