Saturated ruby color. Herbal, smoke, cocoa and berry aromas. Medium body. Smoke, leather, berry and cinnamon spice on the palate. Firm tannins that will give this wine versatility with richer foods and sauces. A rich reduction sauce with any dish, accompanied by well-browned scalloped potatoes, or even a steak au poivre, would be a tasty match for the flavors in this wine.
