Lots of rich, forward flavor in this wine. It floods the palate with blackberries, black currants, blueberries, dark chocolate and sweetly smoked cedar wood, and is properly dry. There’s some sharpness that interferes with a smooth palate ride, but it’s a pretty nice wine.
A nice, medium-bodied red wine to drink with spicy, rich fare, like ham and sausage dishes. It’s very dry and brisk in dusty tannins, with flavors of black cherries, Dr. Pepper, herbs, Asian spices and sweet sandalwood. Syrah, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
