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.
