TASTING NOTE: Attractive notes of fresh crushed dark berries and red flowers, with plum, cocoa and vanilla. Excellent integration makes it an easy-to-drink delight. Rich, ripe and spicy. There's lots to love here and a great deal happening all at once. This supple, silky wine will be great with lamb or steak, but is approachable enough to serve as a contemplative sipper.
