Intense cherry red color' with captivating aromas of vibrant black raspberry. Hints of spice box reflect a judicious touch of oak. This wine is all about depth and succulent layers of flavor. It is round and full in the mouth, with a fruit-filled finish.Great with a rack of lamb, but pairs perfectly with a gourmet or homemade pizza! Summers Website
