Medium garnet color, with soft aromas of leather, earth, and spice. Incredibly complex, silky flavors of mixed spices, strawberry, and tobacco lead into a long finish with dusty, earthy elements. Enjoy this rustic wine now or age 8-10 years for the pinnacle of flavor development. Medium tannins lend this wine to pairing with a variety of foods. Try with anything from rich mushroom or chicken dishes, to lamb chops.
