Sweet uber ripe strawberries and black cherries on the nose. Packs a huge candied dry dusty body with lots of complexity and a long meandering finish. I'm kind of amazed I picked this up for $20.00 at a local wine shop! Might have to pick up a few more...

Newton is among the most pioneering and independent wineries in California. The first American winery to make unfiltered wines, Newton's aim from the start has been to do what the best French estates seek to do?capture the unique scents and tastes of the specific vineyards from which their grapes originate and to make the wine in the most natural, unmanipulated fashion possible. The wines are brilliant, capable of long aging and quite reasonable in price given their exceptional qualities.

Wine Tasting NotesBlackberries and melon fused with raspberries. Rich and round mouthfeel with long finish.
