Tasting Notes

Floral and black fruit aromas make way for blueberry and currant flavors, accented by clove and anise. With a round mouthfeel and a touch of sweetness, this wine finishes with lingering flavors of toasted almonds and coconut. Pairs well with just about any red meat, but especially slow cooked beef dishes.

The Tasting Panel

Fresh and spicy with ripe plum and a juicy style with notes of pepper and tangy acidity. Long and nervy.
