Intense, bright cherry red. Aromatic and complex, with notes of tobacco, cedar and leather against a background of ripe fruit, jam and spices. Powerful yet velvety, with flavors of rich red fruit, licorice and minerals and smooth, ripe tannins.
Excellent with roasted lamb, duck, pork and beef. A great accompaniment to ham croquettes, hard cheeses, and sautéed vegetables.
