Wine Review: If you are looking to try something a little different, give this slightly cloudy dark red colored Cinsualt from Chile. It opens with a fragrant strawberry and craisin bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum, craisin and pomegranate blend with notes of mild minerality and faint oak. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are slightly prolonged. This Cinsault is food friendly and would pair well with Paula Deen's barbecue meatloaf. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Single Vineyard Cinsault shows a purplish red ruby color. On the nose it has intense floral aromas as well as red fruits such as cherries and ripe strawberries. The palate shows juicy and fresh primary fruit flavors, a good structure and soft, well rounded tannins. It will pair well with light, savory dishes and is at its best lightly chilled.

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.
