Tasting notes

When we taste this wine with others for the first time, the common reaction is "WOW! That is GOOD!" We designed this wine to "over-deliver" in all aspects so that our customer has an incredible well-made and affordable wine for every day enjoyment.  The Calico has power, complexity and just enough smoothness to round out the tannins to give it mass appeal.  Hints of Cedar and Spice pounce on a “Raspcherry” nose. A gentle hint of powdered cocoa leads to broad strokes of dark chocolate and mouth filling blackberry on the palate. The texture is mouth filling and supple. Silky cherry and dark fruit find a smoky, earthy and gentle touch of oak and vanilla on the finish.

Open the bottle and drink with friends and family or try with a Grilled New York with cracked pepper.
