Restrained

Red Blend
Description

Restrained is the power of your hidden desires, the source of the wine that is going to help you discover your inner self. A wine to help you understand who you are, who you want to be friends with, and what you will want to do with your life.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Sandalwood, Blackberry and Nutmeg greet you on the nose. 

Palate: 

The Rutherford dust dances across your palate, with notes of dark cherry, chocolate and hints of cedar, rose petal and black tea. Bright acidity on the front of the palate leads to restrained power and a long lingering finish.
