(2009 Vintage) "Balanced, rich and explosive. Think red plums, bittersweet cocoa with hints of smoke and cedar. SO SMOOTH, SO NAUGHTY, AND SO VERY, VERY NICE." -Winery
still a bit on the acidic side. worked ok with lots of different strong cheeses & charcuterie
1. glass with pasta &red sauce - avg. - try another next time
not very sweet, lots of tannins and acidity
Needs time to mature -- at least 5 years.
