Winemaker's Notes

Color: Young and intense bright purple red.

Nose: Very clean and intense aromas with delightfully fresh red fruit and black pepper dominating the nose.

Service and food pairing: Ideal companion for red meat, pasta with spiced sauces and strong flavored vegetables.

Recommended to decant half an hour prior to serving.
