This youthful wine features a striking ruby garnet color. Complex aromas of blackberry and red plum follow lively notes of black pepper, clove and forest floor. Red cherries and currants dominate the fruit components in the mouth while flavors of pepper and tobacco also emerge in harmony with the aromas. The texture is rich on entry and glides all the way to an impressively long, lush finish. Aging potential of five to seven years.
It will pair well with an olive-crusted pork tenderloin or a Vietnamese-style strip steak.
