Winemaker's Notes

Full violet-ruby color. Distinctive Rutherford aromas of black cherry, dark olive and mineral scents, combined with an underlying whiff of smoky-vanilla oak mixed with wild blackberry.

Food Pairings
Delicious with fettuccine in a rabbit and mushroom sauce, veal with demi-glace and green peppercorn sauce, or simply grilled marinated lamb.
