WINE LIST DESCRIPTION: A big, dark, full-bodied red with lovely fruit notes and a soft, lingering finish.

FULL DESCRIPTION: This big red has a clean, light cherry nose and then surprises you with its big, walloping chewy mouthfeel.  A brawny Cabernet with soft, smooth edges, a slight bit of mint and other nice tone accompany the fruit.  It lasts through to a soft, lingering finish.  Serve with meats, cheeses or any big red sauce.
