Intense ruby red in color, this wine offers strong aromas of ripe fruit. On the palate, it is complex and elegant — showing a satin texture with fine tannins and flavors of baked berry and cherry aromas are ripe and come with accents of mocha, leather and caramel. This feels full but not heavy, with balance and cushion to the palate. Spiced black-fruit flavors show a tea-like note, while this is dry, spicy and a touch chocolaty on the finish. The long finish offers notes of licorice.
Ideal with any type of meat, especially game. It is a very elegant wine, which enhances stews and dishes with fatty fish like salmon and tuna.
