This beautiful dark red-purple wine offers complex aromas of spiced black fruit, herbs, and pencil lead that are beautifully balanced by hints of attractive oak. On the palate, it is rich and elegant with ripe fruit flavors, great balance and proportions, herbs and tobacco. Smoothly integrated tannins enhance the texture and the finish is complex and generously long. This wine can be enjoyed now, but further aging will bring great pleasure and can be expected to age for 10+ years if properly stored. Try it with your favorite roasted meats and cheeses.
