The aromatics of mostly red fruits persist with sweet, ripe cherries, cranberries, pomegranates and red raspberries, and finish with a hint of orange peel, marzipan and almond paste. The wine opens up with nice, bright acidity, which leads into a juicy, lighter body with exquisite balance and structure. Flavors of red fruit mimic the nose, but with tones of sour pie cherry, cranberry and a hint of blood oranges and green herbs. The subtle tannin stretches out to a nice, dry finish with a suggestion of cinnamon stick. The wine will benefit from one to two years in the cellar and age well for seven to 10 years from its release date. Pair with fish, poultry, pork or lamb — this wine is very versatile with food. We recommend that you open the wine an hour before serving.
"Broad at the outset, with juniper and bay leaf scents, this wine is tightly packed with black cherry flavor. It fills the palate with succulent fruit while those herbal accents keep the wine savory, the firm fruit-skin tannins in the finish suggestin a pairing with boar sugo."

"Bright, jazzy and appealing for its pure currant fruit, incorporating hints of wet slate, toast and licorice as the finish persists impressively."
