Winemaker's Notes:

Nose: An array of ripe fruit characters with subtle nuances of spice.

Color: Deep, dark red.

Palate: Rich flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate. Excellent depth of intensity and an almost seamless structure. The intense flavors are held together by well-integrated fine grain tannins, providing a long rewarding finish. A stylish wine which will age.

Food Suggestions: Rib-eye steak or filet mignon with roasted vegetables.

Serving Temperature: Best served at room temperature.

Cellaring: Although drinking beautifully now, would reward careful cellaring, 4-7 years.
