Dark ruby red hues with even coloration from core to edge.
Savory and rich, with compote of plum, blackberry, black cherry and cassis out in front. Sage, mild carpaccio, leather and molasses follow.
Grilled stone fruit, pomegranate black tea, blackberry compote, cassis and black cherry mingle with summer forest floor, cocoa dust and dried mushroom.
Long and lingering with fruits that fade to subtle smoky plum and lapsang souchong black tea.
A lovely, fresh ratatouille - optionally served with Moroccan-spiced beef skewers.
