This wine keeps the Lorna-Marie tradition going strong. Reminiscent of the multitude of aromas from a fruit stand, the Lorna-Marie abounds with scents of fresh-picked strawberries, Bing cherries, rose petals, and spiced plum, with a touch of salty sea air and black pepper. On the palate, the wine shows great weight with a viscous, velvet-like texture, and layer upon layer of ripe red and black fruit flavors. This wine possesses a striking backbone of acidity, yet marries beautifully with the soft, creamy tannins, lingering with astounding length. Enjoy now or save for 5-12 years.

"Red Polished, showing a velvety texture to the deftly restrained black currant, plum, smoke and spice flavors, coming together harmoniously. Drink now through 2023.—H.S."

"Bright red. Bright red berry and potpourri aromas show impressive clarity and intensity, picking up subtle notes of cola and Asian spices with air. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering incisive black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and showing a seamless texture. Finishes with excellent focus and length, leaving spicy berry notes behind."

"Velvety, with a light burr of tannins around the blueberry and tobacco flavors, lingering gently and persistently on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2018.-H.S."
