A medium/full-bodied, dry red wine with firm acidity, rich tannins and generous alcohol levels. Dark, inky purple color and ripe fruit flavors of plums, black cherry and blackberry
give an almost jammy character on the palate. Smoke, earth, leather, wild game, tobacco and white/black pepper along with intriguingly spicy notes make for an interesting medley of aromas and flavors, adding to layers of complexity.
Definitely a wine for red meat, it is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy cuisines, such as Mexican, Cajun, Indian, Thai or Italian, working especially well with barbecue and other hard to pair meat-based dishes.
