Translucent dark ruby color. The aromas evoke a medley of currant, plum, cranberry and red cherry, with notes of menthol and smoke. Medium-bodied, the wine has earthy-chocolate tannins that dry out a bit at the end. This rustic red would match up nicely with cured meats and cheese. Just add a loaf of bread, find a scenic vista, and enjoy with a friend.
