Wine Review: This pitch black colored Bonarda is terrific. It opens with a mild blackberry and gentle old oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, rich and silky. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and gentle oak blend with notes of mild blackberry. I also detected hints of black plum as well. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This big and rich wine is very hedonistic. Fans of this style of wine are going to love it. A perfect offering for by the fireplace this winter with sharp cheddar cheese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Red with black intense purplish tints. Aroma: The nose is very fresh, red fruit aromas and black fruit aromas reminiscent of strawberries, cherries, blueberries and raspberries. Flavor: The palate has a silky, smooth and juicy entrance, with a lively acidity and elegant tannins that give a great structure. Very long finish.

Organic status: not organic
