Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep crimson at the heart of the glass, with a lovely red ruby at the very edge.

Smell:

Bold and daring aromas of stewed dark cherry and plum are combined with hints of freshly tilled earth, espresso bean, spicy black peppercorn, and just a bit of sage.

Taste:

Concentrated flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and sweet plum lead the way, quickly trailed by notes of sweet tobacco leaf, anise, mocha, dark chocolate, pomegranate black tea, and freshly ground black peppercorn.

Finish:

Very smooth, exhibiting both power and grace on the finish. The reduced dark fruit flavors slowly give way to pomegranate as the finish fades.

Pairing:

A slow roasted pork shoulder with mustard and sage.
