Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby, purply red color; clean, vibrant, lingering aromas with hints of red berries, blackberries and black cherries. Very rounded clean flavor with red berries in the finish and hints of tobacco and licorice, perfectly reflecting the grape variety with a style that is both traditional and modern.

Serve with substantial first courses with game sauces, grilled meats and good textured fish dishes. Drink immediately or keep for 3-5 years.
