This wine is all about complexity. Starting with the aromatics, which are in the dense and weighty realm. Leading with a woodsy forest scent against a backdrop of fine herbs, toasted walnuts, buttered popcorn and black licorice, the flavors of dark plum emerge. A touch of plum skin tartness and dried black cherry glide across the palate lending a silky feel. The finish is long and smooth.
Try an unusual pairing of fresh tomato basil soup with blue cheese crumbles or a more conventional charcuterie and fromage with baguette.
