(From 2010 Vintage) "This big, spicy, robust, somewhat jammy wine represents exceptional value. It is an excellent match for grilled ribs, sausages, and steaks as well as roasts and stews of lamb, beef and game."
blackberry, strawberry, hint of oak, dry, medium to full visual intensity, ruby, high alcohol, low to medium acidity, licorice hint, some herbaceousness. will continue to get better but fruit forward is gone now (7/22/2010)
