Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep sanguine hued in the glass, with flecks of inky, dark magenta.

Smell:

Beautifully aromatic, with ripe dark berries and juicy blueberry laid overtop soft Provençal herbs, toasty oak, vanilla bean, white peppercorn, tobacco leaf, and dried fallen leaves.

Taste:

A little bit of Southern France dropped in the Dry Creek Valley, with complex notes of fruit, earth, and spice. A clear note of gravelly minerals is also present, adding another flavor dynamic to today’s wine.

Finish:

Incredibly soft and oh-so delectable, we guarantee you’ll love this wine. The lingering finish has fine tannins and robust structure, with a slight note of dried cherry that lingers on the tip of the tongue.

Pairing:

Pork chops, prepared with a dry rub of paprika, chili powder, and garlic, then grilled to perfection.
