Wine Review: This midnight blue colored wine from Borgo Scopeto is very nice. It opens with a cherry-cola and boysenberry like bouquet with a hint of cedar. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe black cherry with notes of cedar and lush blackberry. I also detected hints of minerality and red plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a little while. This red blend is very good and would pair very nicely with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: charged ruby. Bouquet: ethereal and ample, refined and enticing, with noble aromas. Palate: full bodied with extraordinary structure, terrific harmony, and surprising softness.

Organic status: not organic

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
