Dark, rich aromatics—brambly berry intertwined with smoky oak and hints of tobacco—tempt you to quickly dive in. The velvety entry leads into dense, opulent flavors that brighten as they linger. A concentrated blend of plum and blackberry is threaded with toasty oak and dark cocoa notes, along with notes of coffee and eucalyptus. Supple tannins and creamy oak hold the wine in a firm, but gentle structure ensuring that it will be around for years to come.

This youthful wine is best decanted, and if patience is on your side, cellar it for 5 -10 years to see how it evolves. Try pairing it with chicken mole poblano, a medium-rare rib eye with café de Paris sauce, or a slice of chocolate decadence for dessert.
