Tasting Notes:
A phenomenal explosion of aromatics sing from the glass. A kaleidoscope of ripe wild raspberries, red currants, forest floor, sweet cinnamon, clove and an array of dense creamy notes. This heady, perfumey wine evolves delicately over time in the glass. The palate is laden with flavors of Kirsch, wild blackberries, red licorice and purple wildflowers. Hints of coffee, bittersweet chocolate and suede lead to a long, satisfying finish.

Aging:  Barrel-­aged for 22 months in 70% new French oak barrels.

Food Pairing : Pizza and other toasted cheese dishes such as panini and quesadillas. Pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, especially with pancetta/bacon or mushrooms. Grilled chicken, with grilled veggie.
