Intense and lifted aromatic wine with dark plum and berry compote, black olives and cigar box with a vanillin and oak chair lift. The palate has lovely concentration and poise, displaying flavors of rich dark chocolate, cassis and mocha combined with hints of vanillin and spice. Fine grained tannins provide an elegant structure and length.
This wine matches beautifully with barbequed venison steaks with mustard cream and roast vegetables or Gnocchi with wild mushrooms.
Cellar with confidence for 10 - 15 years.
