Lover's Spell is inspired by Aindrajala, the KamaSutra Art of Magic. The label features a International Champion of Magic, David Minkin. David Minkin's "Evening of Enchantment" is more than a show. It's an experience.

Winemaker's Notes

Lover's Spell invites you in with the succulent aromas of fresh figs and Damson plums. Subtle hints of cigar box, cedar wood, and violet are revealed in layers rewarding continued study of the wine's nose. On the palate, those dark fruits continue to develop into flavors of black cherry and cassis. This pleasing entry, generous with fruit, continues broaden in the mouth, revealing a rich, coating mouthfeel. Ample structure drives each sip to its finish, with pleasant, refined tannins lingering long after the wine is gone.
