The wine has dark ruby color. A bittersweet chocolate note accentuates jammy fruit aromas of raspberry, sweet cherry and plum. The wine is lush and sumptuous on the palate with chocolate, cherry and rich plum flavors.
The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 5 to 7 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy!
Best paired with chocolate desserts and blue veined cheeses such as gorgonzola, roquefort and stilton. Also pairs nicely alongside poached pears in red wine and chocolate cakes.
An open bottle develops a nutty, tawny port character over time and under proper care may be kept for up to 6 months.
