From the folks at Talbott Vineyards comes an affordable yet sublime specimen. Elegant and seductive with bright cherry, raspberry and blueberry. It also sports solid acidity, silky, easygoing tannins and an earthy finish. Purely delicious. Might be hard to find but worth the effort. 5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $18
