Tasting Profile

Look:

Impenetrably deep scarlet, with a foreboding heart and a slight lighter glimmer at the edge.

Smell:

Delightful perfumy aromatics, with ripe dark berries framed against summer briar patch, toasty dark baking spices, dried rose petals, and hints of a fresh summer garden.

Taste:

Layered and robust, with juicy dark berries and black cherry laid overtop currant, dark chocolate, espresso bean, fresh cedar wood, clove, and black peppercorn.

Finish:

A decanter, this wine benefits greatly from a little air. Nice, soft tannins frame a lengthy finish, with a touch of dried cranberry lingering on the edges of the palate.

Pairing:

Grilled pork tenderloin, served with a goat cheese, tomato, and blueberry salad.
