Tasting Notes: This wine is definitely sweet (4.0% Residual Sugar) with aromas of blackberry jam, black cherries and plums with a hint of black pepper. The mouth feel is full and the finish smooth.
Not intended to be a food wine. It is made in a Late Harvest style (not stated on the label) and is meant to be enjoyed on your patio watching the sunset or to celebrate finishing your laundry. It would pair well with dessert, especially anything chocolate (dark or bittersweet).
