Cranberry juice with rootbeer brown hues in color....excellent clarity...looks like an above average Pinot Noir. Loads of cherry and dark assorted berries on the nose, along with smooth spiciness and mild mocha/chocolate. The flavors are of delicate berries, slight oak dryness and young Port qualities...alcohol is very gentle and overall the mouthfeel is smooth with soft tannins right on the finish



Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep Purple/Garnet Bouquet: Sweet cherries and red berries with a fragrant spicy layer on the nose. Subtle licorice and cocoa notes typical of our vineyards. Palate: Sweet fruit initially which drives through the palate to a firm, almost chewy finish. The long linear structure and red-fruited flavors typify a favorable Marlborough vintage.
