Sensory Notes

"Juel" is our very special handcrafted blend that shows a deep dark, ruby color in the glass.  On the nose you will find black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, plum, vanilla, dark cocoa beans, sandalwood and savory herbs.  Fruit forward on the palette with hints of melted chocolate will delight your senses.  Pair this wine with a dry aged rib-eye with a smoked espresso salt rub or enjoy it with a classic Beef Wellington. Easily ages 10-15+ years but is ready to drink now with a 30-minute or so decant.
