A terrific wine for a leisurely dinner

There is something about this wine that just makes it the perfect complement to a nice lamb stew on a cold winter night. Rich and full bodied, the finish lingers on the tongue. A wonderful wine to share with friends.

This is my all-time favorite wine! Wonderful flavors, but not too heavy. Some members of my family feel the same and ask for it when they come to visit.
