The wine has a stunning crimson color with fresh raspberry and rhubarb in the nose. It is nice and light on the palate and fills your mouth with watermelon flavors. The addition of Petite Sirah comes through at the end, giving it a lengthy finish with gentle spice. The true beauty of this wine is in its versatility with food. It does well with hard cheeses, tangy potato salads, cured meats and chilled soups, like Gazpacho or cucumber-dill soup. We love bringing this wine to barbecues because people are always surprised how well it pairs with grilled chicken and vegetables. We don't make very much of this wine, but enjoy every minute of making it.
