Food Pairing: This wine combines well with both white and red meats in either traditional or modern cuisine Winemaker’s notes: Deep ruby-violet color. Warm aroma of woodland fruits combining with spicy and caramel notes from good French oak. Full bodied, with ripe, well-rounded tannins and an intense black fruit flavor. Refreshing acidity and a very persistent finish.
