Tasting notes
The wine appears a garnet-edged, deep ruby red, notably luminous and vibrant. A multi-layered, rich nose first offers a
broad array of aromas, including wild red berry, and darker-fleshed fruit such as dried plum, blackcurrant, and
blackberry, nicely lifted by subtle hints of sweet violets, dogwood blossom, vanillaand other spices. Last to emerge are
pungent nuances of roasted espresso bean, cocoa powder, and tobacco leaf. The palate is alcoholically warm, with a velvety
mouthfeel, while alively acidity and tasty, fine-grained tannins contribute to an exemplary balance. Subtle fruit notes
enrich a very long-lingering finish.

Wine pairing: Beef stews, braised meats and aged cheeses.
