Color: intense ruby red, with pale pomegranate highlights. Bouquet: decisive, fine, broad and lingering with hints of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. Flavor: dry, warm, smooth, well textured and lingering on the palate. Gastronomy: great wine with roasts, grilled meats, wild game, and elaborate dishes, as well as rare T-bone steaks. It can also be served alone, as a "reflection" wine.
This ripe red is hallmarked by flavors of cherry, iron and tobacco, with elements of plum and eucalyptus. Strikes a balance between fruity and savory, with a lingering finish of dusty tannins. Best from 2024 through 2038. 2,800 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.
