A unique blend which is hard to describe: butterscotch on the nose, sweet cherry on the palate with a hot, maple like finish. This bottle was a house gift and I will not seek more.

Good table wine.. not great.
My wife commented that it reminded her of cherry flavored cough syrup. Maybe that was a little harsh, but I really can't improve on that description. Maybe some wine drinkers appreciate this; not us.
The wine starts as an inky purple pool of blackness with very long legs. The nose is a fruit forward, blueberry tinged waftiness with a hint of cranberry that subsides into a loamy, peat edge of earth and sky. Drinking is where this wine comes into its own. The flavor profile is a very pleasant mix of sweet berries, rose petals and vanilla with a long, pleasing finish. We paired with a zesty barbecue meat medley and it held up extremely well. This has an excellent QPR and we are actively looking to buy some more.
