What Are We Drinking: IL Duca Cardinal Sweet Red

Region: California, USA

ABV: 11.5%

Cost: $10

Pair With: fruit based desert or with semi sweet chocolate

Color/Appearance: deep purple

Aromas: ripe berries, vanilla

Taste /Description: This wine was an interesting one. Medium in body, balanced in flavor with it’s ripe berries and hint of spice. The level of sweetness of this one is moderate but if paired with the wrong food, you won’t enjoy it as much as the winemaker would like.

I played it safe and drank this at the end of a meal in place of dessert.
