A beautiful wine-dark, mulberry color with a first nose of dark, cool loamy earth and suggestions of raspberries, Damson plums and cherry/chocolate. On the palate, it is sleek and racy with a lively acidity, very soft tannins and great persistence. This is a wine from an extremely cool and elegant vintage, and by all experience, should be a great prospect for very long aging and development.

Pair with lamb dishes of all sorts, Moroccan Tagine, braised beef short ribs, wild mushrooms.
