Immediately greats with notes of dark chocolate, cedar, blackberry and a ‘forest floor’ character. Tasting reveals more blackberry, brambles and a touch of vanilla. The tannins would be classified as moderate
Food Pairing Notes
Start out with a simple dish of toasted bread, olive oil and avocado. You can stick with a nice, creamy farmhouse butter if you’d prefer. Either will work well. Like many reds this wine cries out for a rich and hearty dish, with a high protein and fat component. Mole Poblano Crusted Fajitas would make a good main dish pairing. For dessert go with a simple Black Forest Cake.
