2015 Don Ernesto's Clarinet
"Good wine shouldn't be complicated. Like a rainbow or a puppy or a beautiful sunset, wine should make you feel happy to be alive and enjoying life surrounded by friends. Don Ernesto is just that kind of fun . . . in a bottle”
- Don Ernesto
(And for those of you who don’t know, Don Ernesto has been known to moonlight as Ernie Weir, winegrower and owner of Hagafen Cellars.)
This wine is as fun and friendly as the label suggests. It greets you with aromas of black cherry, lavender and rose hips quickly balanced with a touch of cardamom and spice. The palate is everything the nose suggests with a touch of tart cherry for good measure. It's the red wine for white drinker and red drinkers alike.
