Deep red color with tones of violet. The aromas are complex with notes of prunes, figs, spices and green peppers. On the palate, concentrated dense and mature tannins.
Pair with pastas, medium flavored cheeses or barbecued meats.
"Dry, spicy and floral smelling, with modest herbal accents. The palate is saturated and fairly rich, with good texture and broad, satisfying flavors of berry and plum. Sturdy, consistent and fresh, with easy drinkability.

Smooth & Supple
At this price ($8.25/bottle), we didn't have very high expectations, but after opening the first bottle my wife said What is this wine; I really like it? Unusual for her, but it was enough motivation to order another case before the sale ended. Very smooth and tasty. Ready to drink now, but plan to save a few bottles for the future after it ages a little more.
