2018 Luca's Blend

Deep, bright violet color. Intensely perfumed nose combines blue fruits, candied flavors, and spice. This fruit driven, yet quietly intense wine offers a palate of raspberry and cherry with mineral nuances. Supple tannins give shape to a long velvety finish. It's ready to drink now and will age well.
