Opening aromas include milk chocolate, red currant, blackberry, cinnamon, mint and a whiff of charcuterie. The drink is far from intimidating, offering a stream of easy-to-enjoy flavors as black currant and blueberry lead to a crowd-pleasing juicy finish of Chelan cherry and fresh mint. One panel member remarked, “This would be a fun wine to take to a party.”
