This wine is reminiscent of a naturally sweet, luscious fruit salad. This is the ideal wine to have on hand for visitors to serve with a simple fruit pastry or to pair with pungent cheeses like blue cheese or Humboldt Fog.

The price of this wine is also worth noting. This is truly a delicious wine and only eight dollars. Very few wines in this price point are well balanced. Finding wine you love and want to share with guests under ten dollars is a rare discovery! This wine is an excellent choice, bearing in mind it is a sweeter a wine.
