First shalt thou take out thy Holy Wine Glass, then shalt thou pour Parcel 17, nothing more, nothing less. Parcel 17 shall be the wine thou shalt drink, and the wine thou shalt drink shall be Parcel 17. Parcel 18 shalt thou not drink, neither drinkest thou Parcel 16, excepting that thou then proceed to Parcel 17. Parcel 19 is right out. Once the Parcel 17 hath been consumed, then lobbest thou thy Holy Wine Glass towards thy foe.

Great Wine! It is all it says it is and more. Not tart, subtle and rich with deep cherry undertones, yet light enough to accompany a variety of food. I love it!

Fell in love with this wine at the tasting. So much so that my new wife and I joined the wine club just to get a bottle. I was surprised when I took a taste and it was smooth and refreshing.
