The color is a deep garnet red. The nose is open with earthy hints, intensified by aromas of vanilla and red currant with grilled overtones. On the palate the structure is robust and opulent, with dense tannins. The aftertaste is dominated by the fruit; the finish reveals the silkiness of the tannins. Can be drunk now but will reach maturity in 3-10 years. Tasting temperature: 60°-64°F.
Enjoyable with beef, wild game, and dishes with rich sauces.
The estate uses organic wine-growing methods and favors small yields.
