    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense ruby-red in color, concentrated aromas of black cherries and baked red fruits complement undertones of plums, spices, vanilla, and anise. On the palate, velvety tannins and a full body frame the long, delectable finish of stewed strawberries and vanilla beans.

    Pair this wine with well-aged steaks, demi-glaces, barbecue, and farsumagru.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Balances kirsch and macerated blackberry notes with aromatic layers of wild flower, brick dust and sanguine flavors. Lively, with moderate tannins and a graphite edge to the smoky finish.
