Tasting Notes:
A beautiful opaque ruby in color, this wine will be the perfect accompaniment to any dinner. Winemaker Josh Stein had food in mind when he created this gorgeous blend as the aromas and flavors are all reminiscent of this festive time of year. Red fruits such as cranberry and cherry blend smoothly with black fruits, licorice and plum while nuances of mocha, cedar, bakeshop spices and tobacco tantalize the palate. Excellent acidity and tannin structure combined with low alcohol make this a perfect food wine. The wine’s impressive structure will also allow it to develop for 10-15 years.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This is a food friendly wine that will pair well with a wide variety of hearty dishes. Beef, pasta with meat sauce, lamb and hamburgers pair beautifully with this wine as do vegetarian dishes, pasta and spicy rice dishes. Hard aged cheeses complement this wine as do other cheeses such as Blue, Parmesan and Cheddar. For dessert, try dark chocolate dishes.
