Tasting Notes

Dugger Creek Estate Vineyard is located on a terrace formed during the ice age floods over a 2,000-year period between 13,000 and 15,000 years ago. This gorgeous ruby red wine offers aromas and flavors of black raspberry and black cherry fruit, along with notes of anise, white pepper, tobacco, and sweet herb. A versatile wine that pairs beautifully with slow cooked meats and stews, mushroom risotto and charcuterie. Or, venture to the sweeter side and try it with brownies, truffles or lava cake. Enjoy!

Drink 2023-2030.
