Burly black fruit is complemented by bouquets of dried herb, spicy clove and a touch of heat in this classically styled wine, blended with 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Peite Sirah. With length and structure it finds a way to be fruity and elegant with just enough time in the bottle
The nose has deep cherry and blackberry enhanced by cocoa powder and hints of vanilla and toast. The youthful fruit and welcomed acidity are apparent from the first sip. The wine unfolds and offers a rich, mouth filling texture that persists. The layering and integration of flavors is simultaneously enticing and intriguing. This wine has aged beautifully and is ready for your table.
Serve with grass-fed beef, braised lamb shanks, or roasted game.
