This dark, purple-hued beauty of a red wine is rich and full bodied with a supple mouth feel. On the nose are blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, with a mineral undertone reminiscent of a summer rain on warm gravel. On the palate, this wine has fig preserves in front of more black berries, chocolate, leather and black pepper. Well structured and harmonious. Try serving this wine with a rib-sticking home-made shepherd’s pie.
