Deep garnet in color, intoxicating aromas of purple fruits and wild flowers are underscored by notes of cherries, roses, and baking spices. On the palate, it is elegant, with a long spicy finish. This wine manages to be weightless and intoxicating at the same time. Food Pairing: Pairs well with slow-roasted beef, demi-glaces, grilled pork and apples, and Beef Wellington.

Wine EnthusiastStructured and loaded with finesse, this stunning red opens with scents of perfumed berry, rose petal, baking spice and a balsamic note. The focused palate delivers juicy black cherry, ground pepper, anise and tobacco alongside firm but refined tannins. It has great length, closing on a mineral note. Drink 2018-2028.

Wine SpectatorA stern, almost monolithic style, whose bright acidity and beefy tannins are softened by sweet cherry and spice flavors. This will take some time to come together, but all the elements are there. Best from 2020 through 2030. 1,000 cases made.
