Winemaker Notes

*Library Selection*

Ripe raspberry with darker undertones and floral vanilla bean dominate the aromas with hints of dusty cherry, tea leaf and savory spice in the background. The purity of fruit and balanced palate delights with velvety texture and bright acidity that refresh the mouth.

Drink now or over the next four to six years. Food pairings include traditional Italian dishes such as pizza with mozzarella and basil or Osso Buco with creamy risotto.
