Brilliant, deep ruby red color. The nose is redolent of your go-to red Sangria from your favorite tapas restaurant. Scents of fruity red wine with supporting notes of tropical fruits and citrus fill the nose. The palate echoes the nose delivering a lovely, youthful red wine core with flanking notes of ripe tropical fruit with orange pulp and zest rising on the finish with hints of cinnamon. Medium-bodied with a bright wine core supporting by fresh fruit and citrus finishing with subtle tannins and spice.
