In the glass the color is a dusty medium dark garnet core moving to a medium dark pink rim. On the nose there is a very slight intensity of an elusive fruit, maybe a light fleeting black cherry. On the palate the wine is dry, although there is a hint of sweetness that might lead me to comment that the wine is off-dry. The wine is light-bodied with no perception of tannins although there is mouth-watering acidity. The flavor on the palate is a light to medium intensity of very ripe black-cherry or black-cherry candy. The finish is clean with a medium length of lingering ripe black-cherry fruit.
Wine & Food: This is a simple "quaffing" wine to be served chilled (45F to 50F). It is a perfect wine to make fruit Sangria. You might even pour this wine over ice with a fruit garnish or add a little club soda or seltzer for a "spritzer". Think casual, think fruity.
