This wine has aromas of plum and blackberries, spicy cinnamon and black pepper notes on the palette. Soft tannins linger on the finish. If decanted and hour or so prior to consumption to allow the wine to breathe, these flavors will become more pronounced and the wine will develop both aromatic and flavor complexity.

This is a wine that, when opened and readily consumed, embraces the red meats and flavorful cheeses, yet when decanted broadens into a complex and versatile wine with almost unlimited food parings. Expect this dense and concentrated wine to fill the nose with alluring dark fruit characters enhanced by cassis and gentle oak. Enjoy how the vibrant fruit flavors fill the front palate and then give way to full, soft and supple tannins with an acid and alcohol balance structured for a lingering delicious finish.
