Description

Deep rich red with hints of garnet, this wine exudes aromas of dried leaf, cassis, and licorice. On the palate dried herbal notes, plum, cassis, earth and licorice combine for an interesting complex play of flavours. Tannins are subtle, soft and balanced with the wine’s fruitiness. On the finish, herbal and anise notes contribute to lingering flavours.

Pairing Notes: Rich, subtly seasoned meats like lamb, venison, and roast chicken pair very well with this wine. Ratatouille and Lasagna would make excellent vegetarian pairings. The herbal notes in the wine pair well with dishes that are subtly spiced, especially with classic French or Italian herbs.
