With a deep rich red color this wine shows hints of strawberry, black cherry and spices. Round and elegant it provides a robust mouth-filling sensation with a very well integrated French oak that provides notes of leather and a delicate toastiness. Long in the mid-palate with rich and flavorful tannins. A fruit forward and rich wine.
Ideal pairing with Portobello risotto, ratatouille, chicken with mole and aged cheeses.
"Exhibits a juicy core of flavors, with blackberry, wild berry and raspberry fruit, showing a touch of bramble and stem, ending with a long, juicy finish."
"Rich and ripe, this has liberally oaked flavors of blackberry jam, black currant, dark chocolate and anise. It shows Napa Valley pedigree, but it's tannic now, with mouth-numbing astringency.
