This full-bodied wine will leave you wanting a grilled steak or a smoked rack of ribs. The tannins are strong yet it has an oppulence that gives it a soft, silky finish. Full of blackberry jam notes on the nose the palate is comprised of blackberry pie with a hint of dusty cocoa powder. Aged in French oak for 30 months leaving a long, spicy sandlewood finish. Enjoy now or cellar for 10 years!
