Wine.comAromas of bright berry/cherry fruit and electric-purple color. Like swallowing a whole bowl of mixed ripe berries at once. Big body yet very balanced, with luscious layers of raspberry, cherry, and cocoa flavors. Just a hint of baking spice at the end brings it all together. Pairs well with grilled meats such as beef and pork, smoked ham, and even pizza with meat toppings. Incredibly fun to drink!
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarBright, deep ruby-red. Crushed berries, dried fruit nuances, pepper and a musky, meaty suggestion of reduction on the nose. Densely packed wine with dark raspberry and pepper flavors complicated by a saline nuance. This has creamy depths, with only a faint rough edge giving away its 60% bonarda component. Nicely sappy wine with firm but fine tannins and very good length and lift.
