Aromas of Olympia blueberries, roasted dark berries, and exotic spices are rich and wonderfully ripe on the nose of this classic Meritage-style blend.  There is a chalky and tight tension on the palate, where touches of crushed herbs linger along with supportive fine tannins and a fleeting kiss of new oak.  One for the cellar!
Recommended Food Pairing:
Braised beef short-ribs in a broth of herb-scented red wine, served with a chanterelle/porcini mushroom risotto and a side of balsamic-glazed carrot and beet hash.
