WINEMAKER Dark red with a violet tinge. Robust aromas of cherry tobacco, cigar box and cinnamon spice unravel along with blackberries, prunes, natural flora and subdued aromas of red berries. An elegant, medium- to full-bodied and well-balanced wine with lingering juicy, ripe, dark berries and a sweet red cherry aftertaste. The fruit-forward palate is met with baking spices, reminiscent of Christmas fruit cake. Serve with plainly grilled steak, leg of lamb with rosemary or thyme, roast turkey steak, steak and kidney pie and matured Gouda/Gruyère.
