Garnet red in color, this wine exhibits ripe cherry and spice accentuated with rich plum and savory highlights. It has a rich, sweet approach displaying ripe dark berry fruits, subtle oak spice, velvety tannins and a long, concentrated finish.
This wine's structure and concentration make it an ideal match for a wide range of foods. It will match well with field mushroom pasta or risotto. It also lends itself to rare, grilled red meats or a variety of slow cooked casseroles including game meats, such as rabbit or fowl.
we like a lighter red for spring/summer; this has nice flavor and went well with a seasoned chicken dish and a pepper steak dish
I have been to New Zealand Wine areas a few times and buy Sav Bl, Chard, & Pinot Gris & Noirs. NZ has some of the best buys on the globe and this is one of them.
Smooth & Supple
7 no very strong nose and taste, fruity, tons of earth, so good and sensual, silk texture, medium-light body, medium finish, too expensive though
