Tasting Profile

Look:

Luminescent and glossy dark ruby, the wine glints when held to the light, casting off ruby reflections. After a hearty spin, the wine settles quickly. Tall, widely-spaced legs run very slowly down the glass.

Smell:

Earthy forest floor and bramble mix with a soft berry compote that give the nose a bright lift. After some swirling, another subtle layer appears, revealing tobacco, supple leather and soft spice.

Taste:

Broad and fresh, with an initial rush of sweet dark berry fruit, tart plum skin. As the wine breathes, these flavors are joined by leather, bramble, tobacco and a hint of fresh thyme.

Finish:

Bright and slightly firm, this well-structured wine has a long finish with fruit that quickly tails off to a delightful earthiness. This gives the wine a great complexity. At the tail end, warm sandalwood and spice persist.

Pairing:

Duck with roasted plum and persimmon or a roasted beet and feta salad.
