Jam Session 2017 by Syncopation pleases all palates

Jam Session 2017 by Syncopation, a brand from longtime local wine authority Mike Ward in partnership with Augusta’s Noboleis Vineyards, features notes of soft, juicy blackberry jelly, easy tannins and a finish that will last well into the new year. The refreshing, unusual red will please even the pickiest palate and is delicious at room temperature or chilled. Drink on its own, with barbecue or after dinner with cheese or cheesecake.
