This sweet red blend is very fruit forward when initially opened.  The fruitful scents tend to linger even after it aerates. The initial sips taste like dark fruit, berries, and then are followed by a strong lingering toasty notes.  Some tannins are present, but are overshadowed by the toasted and slightly smoky end notes.  This bottle was from the last year that the wine was crafted by the former winemaker at this winery. When we opened the bottle, we likewise noted that there may have been some decomposition of our cork, so the end notes for this wine and the flavor profile may have been impacted by some oxidation over time. The wine can be served chilled as well for a refreshing red to help combat the hot summer temperatures.
