Scents of dark chocolate, cinnamon and blackberries waft from this New Jersey blend of Cab Franc and Merlot. Dry and medium bodied with a touch of sweet fruit, the red plum and cherry flavors aren't deeply concentrated but combined with soft tannins and a brisk acidity, make for a clean, pleasant wine.
