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!

"Estate-grown, crushed and destemmed, twice-daily pumpovers in the fermenter, 12 months in French oak. Deluxe treatment for a $20 wine. It is medium-bodied, and over-delivers on its price. Mouth-filling satsuma plum and blackberry compote." (JH)

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.
