Dark and intense ruby. Distinctive fragrances of bright black cherry, blackcurrant and fruit pastilles jump out of the glass. The juicy black fruits are accompanied by a mouth-coating creaminess on the palate, along with fine-grained tannins and lively acidity that makes this wine very appealing. Complexity is built with savoury layers of cedar, tobacco leaf and toast balancing the rich fruit flavours that linger on the finish.
Serve with Port wine braised beef short ribs, hard cheese, beef, or stews.
