This ultra-smooth sipper features notes of warm red fruit, hibiscus and herbal spice flavors. After every sip, it lingers in your mouth with pleasant tannins and bright acidity. We recommend pairing it with a plate of crudité (or just baby carrots and hummus).

Made from six different varietals, this masterpiece proves that the sum is greater than its parts. It’s highly drinkable but complex (think: cherry, plum, blackberry and toasty oak­—yum). Don’t be surprised if you kill the bottle in under an hour.
