An intense and persistent nose of vanilla, ripe, dark fruit, and spices. Smooth and sophisticated on the palate with power and personality that lead to a long finish. Excellent with essentially all red meats and game, this is an age-worthy wine that will reward additional cellaring.
A limited production blend of carefully selected fruit harvested by hand. The berries are soft-pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks on the skins at very low temperatures for 25-30 days. Aging followed in large oak barrels for 6 months, plus 12 months in French Allier oak barrels. The wine was bottled under a nitrogen blanket and then cellared an additional 6 months.
Food Pairing: It pairs well with red meats and roasted game.
