    tasting notes

    This wine expresses aromatics of blackberry cobble and graphite, which jump out of the glass. The silky-smooth tannins lift additional fruity notes of ripe boysenberry and toasty mixed nuts. The wine is well-integrated and can be enjoyed on its own at the end of the day or with lighter dishes like salads, noodles, soups or roasted chicken.
