The 2007 Onyx boasts a complex nose abounding in black cherry, plum and berries with intriguing notes of smoke, rose
petals, creamy chocolate, tea and leather. The palate offers red cherry, cola and roasted plum flavors alongside brisk
acidity and dry, chocolatey tannins which sustain lengthy finish. Lush as it is now, three to five years in the cellar will
allow for the palate to open up and match the nose in complexity. Decanting for up to an hour is also recommended.
The youthful structure of this wine calls out for the rich, rustic dishes of southern France; a salad of Puy lentils with duck confit, white bean ragoût enriched with bacon and sausage or mushroom risotto. As age brings out the wealth of secondary flavors, let them shine by pairing with flavorful meats, like game and dry-aged ribeye steaks, simply prepared.
