Tasting notes:

Dense purple color. Aromas of toasty, smoky oak, forest floor and baking spice. Rich, lush, and mouthfilling on the palate. Deep fruit flavors of blackberry jam, blueberry, black cherry, ground black pepper and hints of sweet/spicy oak. Lush, long and loveable. Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork, and lamb, and dishes prepared with mild cheeses or wild mushrooms.
