Deep black plum at the core with a pure, mulberry hued rim. Plums and blackberries at the fore with mulberry, five spice and pepper. The gentle influence of creamy, vanillin oak amplifies the deep, ripe berry fruit. A generous and fruit-forward palate, loaded with plums, cassis and milk chocolate. Rich fruits are laced with vanilla bean, cedar and graphite, finishing with fine, powdery tannins.
Five-spice short ribs or a papardelle and mushroom ragu with garlic, oregano and thyme.
