barreled in French oak. Bottling after one year, bottle aging for two years.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of dark fruit, grass and forest floor. Extreme dark deep red color. Palate of mature red fruit, rich plum and light pepper.  Soft inviting acidity, light tannins and balanced minerality adds texture to the continuing complex flavors.  A long finish of  rich dark berries, tar, anise and pepper.

Paring with rich hard cheese, salamis, roasted heavier meats and vegetables.
