Cherry cola, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, plum, licorice, oak and hints of eucalyptus. Good structure and soft tannins.

The medium-dark wine really has a powerful nose, or maybe I should say an “expressive” one. The dark fruit is draped in earth and minerals and some of the more lovely holiday spice and pencil-lead notes that I've run across lately. On the palate, the fruit tastes “grown up” instead of candied - savory instead of sweet. The tannic structure is firm yet fanciful, the mouthfeel flinty yet filigree. The wine will pair wonderfully with a steak or a pork chop, but it's a great sipper, too.
