Daly Creek Winery – ‘Virgo Moon’ Dry Red Wine

This bottle, dated 2009, contains a blend of red grapes, including St. Croix, Frontenac, and Marechal Foch.  It exhibits bright fruit notes despite the strong smoky character.  The acidity, while high, is befitting a well made pairing wine.  The wine’s coloring is beginning to show sign of age with the deep red beginning to brown, but the taste profile exhibits only the briefest hint of degeneration.

Overall, a well constructed wine which can be consumed on its own or paired with a hardy meal.
