Winemaker's Notes:

Aroma: Lifted with sweet black cherry, cassis, black currant jam, red raspberry fruits with a hint of anise. Honeysuckle, tobacco and forest floor nuances add dimension along with the cedar, and spicy nutmeg of the oak.
Palate: Intense at entry with bright sweet fleshy currant, blackberry, and cassis fruits. Hints of dark chocolate and licorice add complexity to the intense black fruits. The flavors build into a rich, full bodied mid palate that has a mouth feel that is lush and harmonious. The finish goes on and on.
Food Pairings pairs well with steak or chops, beef or lamb.
