Save $10.00 (33%)
Dark red with a black core and deep purple hues. Aromas of sweet cedar, cassis, red berry preserves, mocha and sweet tobacco. Flavors of dried cranberry, ripe red berries, warm cherry pie and caramel apple flavors are complexed with hints of sweet tobacco and spice. The structure is soft and rich with a fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins on the long finish. Pair with grilled lamb or beef burgers, lasagna and other baked pasta dishes with red sauce, dried jack cheese, or aged gruyère.
Ripe but also fairly herbal, with accents of baked cherry, licorice and pepper. Drink now through 2019. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,400 cases made.
