Young and jammy, it’s full bodied with black cherry, blackberry and pepper on the palate. Medium length on the finish. Well made and easy to drink, this one is for brisket or ribs but makes for a great overall red.
Villa Wolf Dry Riesling. Dry Riesling might just be the most versatile food wine on Earth. This Riesling starts with aromas of yellow peach, red plum, apricot, and spring flowers that lead way to combined flavors of stone fruits plus a layer of zesty grapefruit.
