Blackberry and plum create an enticing entrance and are complemented by hints of chocolate and tobacco. The beautiful, creamy palate enhances the dark berry and chocolate flavors. Smooth tannins and barrel spices carry this wine to a long, full finish, making this a great wine over which to linger.
Steak, pork, grilled blackened chicken and heavy pasta dishes with meaty red sauce all pair well with this wine. Additionally, aged Cheddar or dark chocolate will complement this wine well.
