Dark ruby color. An enticing nose of spicebox leads to aromas and flavors of ripe black fruits. Full-bodied yet supple, it sports mild, chocolately tannins on the finish. It will complement a number of foods, from nutty aged cheeses to charred red meats. The structure should offer drinking pleasure through 2018.
