Tasting Profile

Look:

Rustic cherry red, like a ripened bushel of cherries at the farmer’s market.

Smell:

A very interesting blend, with subtle and elegant hints of red fruit, a touch of lavender, black peppercorn spice and a hint of minerality. This wine was made in the Southern Rhone style, with earth and structure ahead of fresh fruits and reduced fruits.

Taste:

Red fruit, subtle earth, spice, black peppercorn, lightly roasted coffee bean, a bit of vanilla bean, and toasty brown baking spices.

Finish:

Strong structure, with a subtle tart cherry flavor that lingers through to the end.

Pairing:

Cherry glazed pork chops with rosemary potatoes seem the obvious choice for this bright and earthy wine.
