Vibrant and deep ruby color. The very attractive nose has aromas of fresh blackberry, red currant and dried fruit. The palate is round and opens with earthy/herbal tones and finishes with silky flavors of cassis, chocolate and black pepper. Balanced and drinkable now, but also an excellent addition to the collector's cellar. Food Affinities: Start with a base of a hearty red meat, duck or veal cut. To bring out the flavors in the wine, complement the entree with sides or sauces featuring mushrooms, roasted tomatoes or garden spices (oregano or thyme).
From the producer's estate and combined with small amounts of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is an Old World-style, graceful expression of relatively cool-climate Cab, leathery and tight in tannin structure. Plum, cherry and fresh acidity give it a lift of fruitiness around dots of dried herb.
