Winery Review: This wine integrates cherry, strawberry, and black currant with a hint of leather on the nose. The palate is reflective of this, with the addition of smoke, blackberry, and spice. With a smooth, lush body, this wine is easy drinking and great for food.

My Review: I liked this wine after a bit, but at first taste I didn’t think I would. It was a really nice purple-red color and smelled very fruity. However, I didn’t taste any of the fruit, and it was pretty dry with a very earthy taste. I also tasted a lot of spice and a hint of tobacco. My favorite aspect of this wine was how smooth it was. It had little to no acidity and no tannins.

 

I didn’t eat any foods with this wine, but I think it would go really well with a classic Pecorino cheese.
