Put a small green pepper between fresh blueberry pie and cherry pie, and you’ll get the aromas coming from the glass. The palate is similar, leading with sweet blueberry pie filling and vanilla-flavored crust, moving toward the same in cherry on the mid-palate, and ending with a touch of green as it moves to the finish. The finish is short. Mouth-feel is smooth and satisfying, the wine a bit fat, favoring fruit and smooth tannins over acid. Buy this by the case for burgers. Recommended. 86.
