Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in color, this complex wine explodes with a spicy cherry and earthy raspberry aroma with hints of anise and white pepper. The juicy black cherry flavors are framed by bright acidity and ripe tannins for a long finish.

Ratings

Wine Enthusiast 87 pts - This appellation blend is plummy on the nose, with additional aromas of wet campfire, elegant violets and turned earth. There is great energy on the palate, with flavors of tart pomegranate and snappy raspberry, as well as layers of peppercorn, dried marjoram and thyme.

About the Winery

Through four generations, the Terlatos have brought the world’s finest wines to the American table as importers, marketers and vintners. Rather than focusing on a single grape or place, Tony Terlato and his family have assembled an all-star team of winemakers with the tools to create best-in-class wines from iconic appellations – to capture “magic in a glass,” as Tony says. These wines reflect the family’s highest values, and their vision of all that can be realized from soil, grape and commitment.
