Wine Makers Notes

Each year I get closer to where I want to be with the Cherry Wine, the first vintage was too high in alcohol, and lighter in color, the second vintage finished a bit too sweet but had the richness I liked and this vintage is in my opinion a perfect balance of fruit and complexity.
