Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep scarlet.

Smell:

Deep aromatics of blackberry and sweet plum are layered against chocolate, coffee bean, freshly tilled earth, hints of a fresh spring garden, and bold notes of sweet dried herbs.

Taste:

Very elegant and refined in style. Concentrated flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and subtle raspberry are paired with terroir elements of dried fallen leaves, vanilla bean, sandalwood, caramel, sage, rosemary, dark baking spices, and cedar wood. As the wine opens, hints of fresh blueberry and red currant emerge.

Finish:

Best decanted, this is a bold wine that needs to breathe. Once the wine opens, you’ll be greeted by a long and lingering finish, with well integrated tannins and lasting hints of dark fruit and spice.

Pairing:

Aged New York Strip, grilled to perfection and finished with rosemary-garlic butter drizzled overtop.
