The alcohol level is a modest 9.5%, making it a perfect luncheon wine – among other possibilities. Recommended. RC
The perfect little wine for light meals like chicken or fish with salad.
The nose has rich dark fruits and with a light floral background of violet. The palate has dark plums, elderberry, pencil lead, and violets. Tobacco leaf shows up on the mid-palate. Tannins are very fine. The overall impression is of smooth layers of dark depth. The finish is sweet and lingering, everything is in excellent balance. Drink with bacon-wrapped filet. Highly recommended. DH
