ONE OF TWENTY "BEST SELLERS" FROM FAMED VIRGINIA IMPORTER FRAN KYSELA'S IMPORT BOOK!! OH BY THE WAY, DID I MENTION A "BEST BUY" HERE AT THE LAWC AS WELL?

THIS IS THE LOWEST PRICE IN THE COUNTRY!

"Fragrant, with notes of dried violet and black tea that open up to gingerbread-laced dark berry flavors. The tannins are plush and velvety. A spicy accent kicks in on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 18,000 cases made. -MW" (WS)

"Youthful purple. Black and blue fruits, vanilla and licorice on the perfumed nose. Sweet and broad in the mouth; a peppery note adds spicy lift and cut to sweet cassis and blackberry flavors. Supple tannins come in late, adding shape to a long, dark-fruit-dominated finish." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Deep purple red. Aromas of ripe plums, cherries and earth with subtle notes of vanilla and cloves. The aromas follow through onto the palate with a fruit focus, subtle oak notes and soft, rounded tannins. The wine walks the line between medium and full bodied with a plush mouthfeel.
