IDEA
Now and then a wine is required that doesn’t need a ritual on opening, whose departure from a collection is not accompanied by nostalgic memories of its purchase.  A wine that doesn’t need glasses you don’t have. Sometimes one wants a wine to be a song heard a thousand times, something to hum to, tap to, work with.  A wine that’s finished before you get to know it, a wine you begin to miss only when it’s gone.  A wine that realizes there are other things in life, a lot of other things, and we should all loosen-up, lighten-up, and live-a-little.  The Live-a-Little range was created to be that wine.

TASTING NOTES
This intense, dark ruby colored wine has aromas of roasted red pepper with notes of vanilla that Deep violet black color. Chocolate cherry, raspberry gelato and watermelon sorbet aromas with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a lightly smoky charred nut, apple core, and flint finish. A great choice for BBQ, boar or bison.
