Tasting Profile

Look:

A dark ruby core fades to fine pink edges. After swirling, the wine settles quickly in the glass.

Smell:

Dark and brooding with dried cherry, dried cranberry, dried leather, raisin, dried dark rose petal, and young alpine strawberry.

Taste:

Silky and juicy, with broad flavors of Bing cherry, pomegranate, dried unsweetened strawberry, bittersweet baker’s chocolate, and a hint of tobacco leaf.

Finish:

Very broad, with flavors that coat the palate. Bold tannin drives flavors to the far corners of the mouth and a very gradual dryness settles in.

Pairing:

Easy to pair, we’d recommend this wine with a pork tenderloin drizzled with a red wine sauce with currants.
