Earthy, Old World aromatics of forest floor and cedar come froward in this deep garnet-colored wine. Black fruit flavors of rich plum and cherry lead to a finish of tanned leather, baking chocolate and caramelized brown sugar. Weighty with big, round tannis the wine coats your entire palate and is ready-to-drink pairing nicely with hearty meats and sharp cheeses.
