WineO Mark Review

Scarlet color on the glass, this wine has aromas of blueberries, prunes, and slight herbal notes.

It’s full-bodied, dense, rich, and supple flavors. There are dark fruit flavors of blackberry, blueberry, and black cherry, followed by some chocolate, oak, vanilla, cinnamon, and earth. It has a velvety frame with an expressively long finish.

This red blend is an easy drinking, fruit-forward, and very smooth wine.
