"90 points! A robust wine with strong, complex flavors of cherries, red currants, mocha, grilled meat, bacon and plenty of peppery spices. A bit forward and unsubtle, but deliciously dry, with smooth, dusty tannins and a cut of acidity. Seems at its best now with rich fare like lamb." - Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast
Intense aromas of blueberries with clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Bright
flavors of raspberries and blackberries. Some vanilla and caramel flavors.
The mouthfeel is dry and tannic but just now beginning to soften.
Finishes long with cherries and blackberries. (A normal tasting note -
can you stand it?)

Food Pairing Notes
Heavy Duty! Roasted beef, ribs, game, starches... this wine will stand up against some pretty heavy dishes!
