Tasting Notes: Intense garnet red color. On the nose, complex aromas of red fruits, spice and light balsamic notes. In terms of the palate, a firm structure with well-balanced minerality and intense flavors of ripe fruits. Ideally served at 64 º to 68º F. Outstanding with red meat dishes, aged cheeses and chocolate.

Reviews

A chewy and rich wine with polished tannins and lots of ripe fruit that gives dried strawberry and orange peel character. Full body, yet balanced and delicious. Dusty tannin texture. Drink now. ~93JS

Ripe and lush, with oak spice chiming in with plum, fruitcake and caramel flavors. Gives pleasure, but is less typical for the region. Drink now through 2024. 700 cases made, 100 cases imported.  ~91WS
