Tasting Profile

Look:

Garnet from core to edge, with perfect clarity.

Smell:

Lush and full, with bold black cherry, cedar plank, raspberry, wild mushroom, sweet tobacco, forest floor and soft spice.

Taste:

Black cherry and blackberry juice wrapped around sweet spice, raspberry, dusty bramble, tobacco leaf, cocoa powder and forest floor.

Finish:

Long and bright with darker fruits tailing off to earth and spice components. Supple tannins spread a crushed velvet dryness across the palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with an herb roasted chicken or BBQ baby back ribs, slathered with a tangy sauce.
