Ponchera Sangria is delicious on its own, with fresh fruit added or as a great base for a mixed wine cocktail.  With a bold combination of red and purple fruit notes and spices on the nose, especially cardamom, ginger and cinnamon, it’s light, fresh, not overly sweet and easy to enjoy. The grapes for the Sangria are Syrah, Merlot and Zinfandel from California.
