How many cases will you grab up?
Very highly recommended.
Deep and dark purple, with a wide ring of burgundy coloring at the edge of the glass. Wide tears run slowly down the glass when swirled.
Blackberry jam, blueberry pie, raspberry, spice box, plum, dried tobacco leaf, cocoa dust and cedar.
Black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, brown spice, tobacco, baker’s chocolate, dried fall leaves and a hint of black pepper.
Long and elegant, with bold black fruits that gradually give way to earthy spice, and chocolate, punctuated by a hint of black pepper at the very end.
Enjoy this brilliant, fun and approachable wine with everything from backyard burgers, to more elegant pairings like filet mignon or saucy spare ribs.
