Tasting notes: Gorgeous ruby red with flashes of pomegranate, dense and luminous. The olfactory sensation is impressed with a well bred wine -generous with sensations that range from wild strawberries and red currants to blackberries and blueberries with just a hint of spicy cardamom and vanilla that meld with flinty mineral tastes, gun powder and graphite. Rich velvet drapes softness over the palate leaving room for rounded delicate tannins.
Food pairing: Ideal with rich meat stews, aged hard cheeses.
