Rich, deep red garnet color with aromas and flavors of black currant, ripe plum, and blackberry. Notes of lavender, cocoa, and leather are layered with black pepper and vanilla bean. Full-bodied and intense, this wine is balanced and well-structured with seamless acidity and firm tannins.
This powerful wine pairs well with beef, lamb, pork, or game dishes. Winery Chef Chris suggests trying it with Cured Beef with Parmesan and Arugula or using the wine to braise Beef Short Ribs.
