Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose you get cassis, black currant and sweet black cherry, combined with honeysuckle, tobacco and the spicy nutmeg of the oak. The palate is rich, full and bright, with currant and blackberry leading the way. Hints of dark chocolate and licorice add complexity to the intense black fruits and lead to a long, lingering finish. The very definition of grace and elegance.

Serve with steak or chops, beef or lamb.
