SKU 815132010076


Powerful, complex aromas of dried plums, with 'balsamic' (anise, fennel, mint) traces. Quite dry (not sweet), soft and with bright acidity, with baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon flavors and structured, noble tannins. Pairings: Grilled or roasted red meats, game, and hard cheeses like parmesan. Considered a 'wine for meditation,' to be sipped on its own, this is also a perfect after-dinner wine.

Wine SpectatorLight, grippy tannins frame this medium- to full-bodied red, which leans toward the traditional style, with a firm structure and notes of cured tobacco and forest floor. Well-knit and silky on the palate, offering ripe crushed cherry and tarry smoke notes. Drink now through 2027. 41,000 cases made.
