Dark ruby black color. Aromas and flavors of green bell pepper, smoked cherries, and jalapeño with a crisp, off-dry medium body and a brisk finish with soft, fine, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A fresh and fruit forward red with just a touch of sweetness.

Off-Dry Red

Off-dry wines are slightly sweet wines that are great for sipping on their own or throughout a meal. They're different from dessert wines in that they contain considerably less residual sugar and have only a softly perceptible sweetness.
