Wine Review: This deep purple colored Cuvee from Kokomo opens with a fragrant blackberry bouquet with hints of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and nicely balanced between its fruit and acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry and plum blend with notes of fine minerality. I also detected hints pomegranate and a touch of oak. The finish dry and its medium tannins are slightly dusty. Both the tannins and fruit nicely drift away. I would pair this wine with a Yankee pot roast. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This blend is primarily made up of fruit that is grown by our 4th generation grower and partner, Randy Peters. It is framed by a sturdy structure of Bordeaux varietals and accented with a touch of the Rhone to bring out depth, spice and individuality. The main goal for this blend was to make a beautiful food wine that is complex, balanced, and easy to drink.

Your comments on this wine:





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.
