This is an impressive Claret-styled wine, boasting crushed blueberry, black pepper, currant, and licorice flavors with attractive sanguine notes. Pencil shavings, saddle leather and cigar accents are present throughout, flawlessly mixing with a bold tannic backbone and unctuous mouth feel.
Recommended Food Pairing:
