Tastes like really, really good red wine. Hard to separate all the flavors. Which varietal is lending which notes? Who knows? Who cares? Rounded, lush, layered and lovely, the ultimate food wine, pairing well with everything from pasta and pizza to grilled meat and roasted chicken. Blackberries, currants and dark cherry combine with roasted coffee, melted dark chocoloate, black pepper, soft tannins and a supple lingering finish.
