Sensory profile Impressive appearance of intense ruby red. A complex, fruit-rich bouquet seductively infused with a heady vein of warm alcohol. It opens to ripe cherry, prune preserves, ripe persimmon, and a subtle hint of dried red berryfruit, yielding gradually to notes of cocoa powder, lime blossom honey, and nutmeg, with a long-lingering, intense conclusion. Full-bodied on the palate, it expands, warm and seductive, with supple, cleanly-delineated tannins driving aromatic impressions of liqueured blueberries and walnut spirits. It finishes very long.


Pairings This superb wine partners best with elaborate meat dishes, and in particular with pork and boar, stuffed game birds, and dishes that tend to the succulent and sweet.
