    First time i have this grape. Label has Braille writing, first time I see painting on cork bottom (I don't like that ink touches wine). This is an Organic DDO wine. Golden-red color. Nose: Subdued big vanilla, blueberry, spring flowers, light tobacco. Taste: Earthy smooth start, some medium red fruits in middle, peppy ending with dark chocolate ... Read More

Flavors follow suit, with generous cherry, black current and the finish lingers on the palate for a spell, bringing a ... Read More
