Intense, almost perfumey, aromatics of black and red fruit are layered with earthy spice notes. The velvety entry reveals lush, concentrated flavors of ripe plum, cherry, blackberry, mocha, and creamy oak. As the wine glides across the palate, hints of molasses and sassafras appear. A gentle yet firm structure stays in the background as it frames the wine.
Pair this wine with smoked brisket served with a side of garlic fries, or grilled sausages and peppers tossed with extra virgin olive oil drizzled pasta.
