Aged for 18 months in 20% new oak, the wine shows requisite graphite, cedar, and tobacco. The wine is balanced with generous black cherry and blueberry flavors, with a complementary dose of vanilla and toasted oak.
No shrinking violet, this vintage loves to be paired with big flavors and spice.
Enjoy it with ribeye steak, roast lamb, smoked brisket, ox cheek stew with chili, grilled eggplant, and strong hard cheeses like cheddar, or a sweet and mellow blue cheese.
Blend: 80% Petit Verdot, 20% Malbec
