Bright ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by black pepper and candied rose. Tightly focused red berry flavors are underscored by smoky mineral and floral qualities. Emphatically fruity and silky in texture, with a smooth, gently sweet finish.

Light and mellow, with bright cherry and cranberry notes. Very fresh, this is a terrific wine for making sangria, but on its own is nice with burgers, pizza or tacos.
