Beautiful and fragrant. Aromas of black cherry and raspberry, along with hints of violets, earth, warm spice, cedar and leather. Medium nodied with some soft but drying tannins and mouthwatering acidity on the palate. Fruit flavours are concentrated and ripe and there is a lot of spice, cedar, tobacco and leather hints on a lengthy finish. Enjoy with any roasted or braised meats or rich, meaty pastas.

Tons of cranberry and hints of strawberry in this fresh and flavourful rose. Such a rich colour, and the flavours match. Medium bodied on the palate, with tons of tart cranberry bursting on the palate, and slight notes of orange and lime on the finish. Enjoy with ribs or any other pork dish.
