The Junior leaps from the glass with notes of raspberry preserves, rich cherry and a hint of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely plush texture and tons of delicious red fruits and a super polished finish.
We have updated the back of the Junior bottle to tell the story of Junior and how it came about. If you were not aware of what inspired Waugh Cellars business model and the Junior label, the back of the bottle will now tell you. It was an episode of Seinfeld called The Opposite that really spoke to me and I titled my business plan, The Costanza.
Enjoy the Junior!!
