This delicate red is the perfect wine for sitting on the porch at sunset or to pair with a holiday dinner. The 2019 Cinsaut is bright, juicy, and fruit forward, making it the perfect sipper for a hot day. Aromas of strawberry, watermelon, and raspberry burst from the glass, while more subtle notes of vanilla, crushed flowers, and birch add depth and draw you in. The palate is loaded with notes of fresh summer berries and blood orange, leading to a soft, velvety finish that keeps you coming back for more.
