Lovely fragrances of black cherries, cassis, and blueberries. Rich and bright on the palate with ripe fruit flavors, bold tannins and a lingering minerality.
92 points, Wine Enthusiast (June 1, 2011): “…concentrated blackberry and cassis flavors with a kiss of tangy minerals that must come from the dirt.”
Pair with: Red meats, as well as smoked duck breast, dishes with wild rice (earthy notes) and wild mushroom risotto.
Only 399 cases produced. Drink now or cellar 15 - 20 years.
