'Lustrous ruby red in the glass. Aromas of ripe red and black fruit aromas mingle with leather and spice, exquisitely balanced by wood notes evoking vanilla and toast. On the palate, supple tannins and a majestic structure conclude in a complex and persistent finish.
Serving suggestions: Delicious with steaks, wild game, hearty stews, casseroles and ripe, semi-creamy cheeses.
Bright ruby. Musky red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by underbrush, pungent herbs and dried rose. Impressively complex on the palate, offering sweet red- and blackcurrant, bitter cherry, mocha and licorice flavors. Dusty tannins carry through the long, spicy finish, adding structure and grip. This is balanced to age and could stand up to many Bordeaux at three times this price.'
