Inky black-blue color precedes perfumed aromas of cassis,
espresso, and dark chocolate. Intense dark currant, blackberry, and plush plum
flavors initially fill the palate. This heady, explosive wine then finishes
long with BBQ rub spices, sweet toasted oak, and round tannins. Pairs
spectacularly with grilled meat, sausage, pizza (and anything with savory red
sauce), and robust hard chesses like Parmesan, Pecorino, Romano, Sharp Cheddar,
Emmental and Manchego.
