One of our most coveted blends, this vintage of Cherry Red shows slightly more restraint and structure than past vintages, while still offering the distinct and decadent flavors it is known for. The aromatics remind one of a patisserie, trays of fresh croissants, cream puffs and clafoutis coming out of the oven, creamy and buttery pastry intermingled with the dense fruit. An elegant exposition of cherry flavors crescend over the drinker at the first sip. On the tip of your tongue, it is the young, bright red, first fruit of the harvest. As it reaches your mid-palate, it transforms into dark and juicy peak of harvest black cherries, and, finally sun-dried bing cherries linger in a seemingly never-ending finish. Hints of molten caramel brought by the American oak it aged in compliment the overall pleasure Cherry Red has to offer. Drink it now, drink it in twenty years, this wine does not know how to disappoint.
