Dark garnet color. Mild aromas and flavors of blackberry, currant, and cocoa with a velvety, bright, dry medium body and a polished, interesting, breezy finish with nuances of cherry and boysenberry with soft tannins and light oak. This red delivers every day drinking ’elevated’ with round red fruit, toothsome tannins and a juicy finish.

Vin de Pays are for better or worse, country wines - simple, everyday offerings that offer charm and local character for not a lot of money. The wines are usually named for their grape types. Besides Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, other reds include Pinot Noir as well as blended reds. These are medium-bodied wines with moderate tannins, good acidity and a lighter herbal character. They are fine values, priced in the $10-$12 range in most cases. Drink fresh and pair with stews, lighter poultry and bistro cuisine.
