This Malbec (12%) and Shiraz (88%) blend is a bold, full-bodied Shiraz. It’s very distinctive with roasted mesquite flavorings, and lots of mouth-watering black cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and black currant fruit blending with anise, vanilla, and a graphite notes. The long, smoky finish lets an espresso hint linger, allowing the wine to pair very well with dark chocolate. For more substantial pairings, steak, lamb, venison, or chili make for a nice meal. For snacking, cheesy dishes, Parmesan, Asiago, Gorgonzola or bleu cheese with Prosciutto are magically delicious with this wine.
