Color: Rich garnet red.
Aromas: Fragrant dark berryfruit and black cherry, hints of savory spice and chocolate.
Palate: The palate shows rich, dark plum and berryfruit. There is a wonderful ripe fruit sweetness and the tannins are fine and seamless.
Serving Suggestions: The wine's concentration and elegance make it an ideal match to a wide range of foods. It is perfectly matched to porcini or field mushroom risotto or pasta. The savory richness also lends itself to rare venison, grilled ostrich, slow-cooked rabbit, hare or wild fowl stews with winter vegetables.
Cellaring: A complex, finely structured wine which will age gracefully for at least six years.
