COLOR: True garnet with subtle hints of orange on the edge
NOSE: Showing dark fruits with cocoa, leather, and hints of menthol
PALATE: Elegant soft tannis abound on the palate coupled with well balanced acidity. Flavors of black cherry and cedar are dominant.
PAIRINGS: This wine will pair well with full flavored cheeses, mushroom dishes, French stews, and full flavored Italian inspired cuisine.
This wine was properly stored by the vineyard proprietor. The vines for this wine are planted in a European inspired meter by meter spacing. This "tight" spacing only allows for hand managed vines yielding expressive terroir driven wines. This wine was retasted after several days being opened and the nose and flavors were just as vibrant as the first day being opened. Drink now through 2030 and quite possibly beyond...
