Fuller medium-bodied, dry. This is 8 year-old wine has aged wonderfully. A nice ripe nose of dried fruit followed by a structured palate of black fig, earth, and some dark cherry. The finish keeps you coming back for more: tannic, dry, dusty, and a little funky. Pair with grilled and roasted red meat, pasta dishes, strong cheeses.
