Best Red Dessert Wine, a DOUBLE GOLD and 4 GOLD Medals
Every once in a while, a twist of fate can deal a quirky hand, and with a stroke of magic it can become an enchanting experience.

Abracadabra!
Inky blue-purple in color, yummy deep razz-blackberry jam and luscious dark chocolate of oak spices, sweet but not clumsy, pleasingly balanced with a bit a tartness, not at all hotly alcoholic, bit of warm vanilla at finish.
