With a name like “Murgatroyd” you might expect this wine to smell and taste like a pink mountain lion. While this wine is as dry and intense as a night in the desert, and its spicy aromas might be the result of a romp in the sagebrush, nothing could be further from the truth. Bright aromas of cherry soda and licorice, with full fruit flavors of blueberry tart and leather are certainly nothing like a pink mountain lion. Then again... why is he pink?
