Winemakers Tasting Notes
In the glass, the color is a dramatic deep pink with a blush of sunset. Intense ripe strawberry, juicy watermelon, and fresh cherries are interwoven with apple, pear and stone fruit. On the palate, the wine is creamy and seductive, with defined structure from the addition of Pinot Noir in the final stages. The overall impression is one of bold vibrancy and impact from start to finish.
