(From 2013 Vintage) Dark ruby black color. Attractive, creamy aromas and flavors of berry pie and creme brulee with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-length finish evoking notes of mocha, apple, cocoa, and tobacco with chewy tannins and light oak.
Color: Deep ruby Bouquet: Black currant, plum and hints of peppermint, coupled with vanilla and subtle oak Taste: Ripe plum flavors and soft tannins lead into a supple,long finish. Serving Suggestions: Serve with red meats, game, hearty stews, rich pasta entrées, and soft cheeses.
