A garnet red color with a delicate, appealing, intense bouquet, reminiscent of violets and dry roses, alcohol-soaked cherries, vanilla, tobacco, truffles and pepper. The taste is full, robust, austere but velvety and harmonious.
A great accompaniment with red meats, pot roasts and gamebirds, as well as ripe cheeses.
"Fresh and plump, with juicy flavors of cherry, raspberry, licorice, menthol and oak spice. The oak doesn't intrude, and this ends with an aftertaste of black cherry, tar and mineral notes. Best from 2014 through 2027. 6,000 cases made."
"There’s a succulent, sweet element here that resembles Christmas spice or cinnamon roll. Behind that curtain of spice, concentration and intensity are elegant tones of black licorice, cassis, plum and toasted nut. Try this wine with honey-roasted ham embedded with clove."
