Clear, bright, medium-full ruby with some black-purple tint. Clean, medium intensity aromas: tons of fruit, cooked fruit, black cherry, raspberry, floral. Dry, medium body, medium tannin, medium-low to medium acidity. Flavors of dark fruit, blackberry, plum, baking spice. A rich, medium-long finish. Would pair well with olive tapenade, chili (though avoid something too spicy), barbeque, or chocolate torte.
