... ripe and rich. This is a smoky and fruity wine, in barrel for 14 months. It has ripe black fruits and rich, dense structure. Spice and toast balance the fruit, giving an impressive sense of generosity.
A wine displaying raspberries, violets, cacao and creamy notes. This is a full-bodied red with round tannins, crisp acidity and a long, fresh finish.
The nose evokes macerated red berries, dried tobacco, bell pepper and cedar. Medium on the palate, the fruit is drier (almost dusty) with earthy undertones Pair with: Chicken Cacciatore, Beef Stroganoff, and Chili Rellenos.
Winemaker's tasting notes: Deep, rich color. A nose of black fruit, menthol, evolving into mineral notes when aired (pencil lead, chalk.) An elegant palate, voluptuous, supple, silky tannins.
