Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has wonderfully complex aromas of sweet earth, vanilla and spice. Mature, noble tannins and balanced acidity combine to produce a silky, luxurious mouthfeel and rich, deep black currant, plum and tobacco flavors that are long on the palate, with dark chocolate notes on the finish.

Pairs well with dishes such as broiled salmon, beef stew or roasted pork loin.
