Deep ruby red with violet tints, the wine displays complex notes of wild berries integrated with elegant nuances of toast, oak and spice. Both rich and complex on the palate, with firm tannins and a long finish, this is an impressive red.
The two grape varieties are harvested in late October. After a 14-20 day maceration, they are then blended and aged in 225-liter French oak (Tronçais and Allier) barriques a 24 months, followed by at least 10 months in bottle prior to release.
Perfect with red meats, game, stews, hearty vegetarian dishes and ripe, flavorful cheeses. Serve at a cool room temperature.
