Brilliant ruby with a deeper dark core of red plum skin. After the wine settles, ultra-skinny, wine stained tears fall swiftly down the glass.
Dark red cherry, red plum and dried dark berries. Underneath the wine shows hints of the Carmel Valley characteristic artichoke and subtle fresh green bell pepper aromas.
Dark plum juice with tart cherry, fresh rhubarb, cranberry, green tobacco leaf and subtle brown spice.
Bright red fruits tail off to subtle earth and spice. At the edges of the palate, tart flavors linger on for a very long time, gradually giving way to an all around the mouth dryness.
Pair this bright wine with spareribs, a fatty prime rib or an eggplant parmesan.
