Powerfully ripe fruit with ample-toasted oak and vanilla bean flavors balance out the cherry fruit in this elegant, but complex dry wine. Toasted almonds linger in this pinot noir style blend with a spicy and smooth finish.
Type: Dry Red Wine
Optimal Serving Temperature: 59-66ºF (15-19ºC)
Serving Size: ½ cup or 4 ounces
Storage Notes: Store away from light and at room temperature (<66ºF). On average, this wine will last 3-5 days after opening the bottle.* Stash opened drier red wine in the fridge. The cooler temperature of the refrigerator will help slow down the oxidation process and keep the red wine fresher longer. Simply remove the wine from the refrigerator a few hours before your customers are likely to purchase wine so that it can be served at room temperature.
