With its broad array of origins and clones, this
wine displays red aromas (candied cherry,
pomegranate and raspberry), on the nose and the palate. In addition, one finds a light touch of brown spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice). True to our house style, it is elegantly textured with seamlessly integrated, silky, polished tannins.
Pair it with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) or beef, or hearty vegetarian entrees.
"Lean and saline, this has an enticing delicacy to the aromas. The flavors are savory, more in line with salted plum and dried cherry than fresh fruit; the texture, however, is loaded with tension, a fresh, driving energy that suggests a long and pulsing life ahead—and a solid pairing with duck confit. Best Buy."

"Sleek and slender, but fleshy enough to deliver cinnamon-accented cherry flavors, showing a hint of coffee as the finish lingers. Deftly balanced."
"Vivid red. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant and cherry, with complicating Asian spice and floral nuances. Juicy and light on its feet, offering energetic red fruit and rose pastille flavors complemented by a touch of black tea. Finishes bright and long, with lingering spiciness and no obvious tannins."
