“This is deeply savory, a well of black olive, black cherry and Oolong tea flavor. It needs lots of air to rise out of its concentrated earthiness, and rewards with lighter notes of dried herbs and red cherries. It feels both rustic and elegant, an intriguing bottle to open with leg of lamb.”

"There's a wild edge to this fresh red, which sports juicy plum, black currant and wild flower notes. Easy-drinking, with a tangy finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases imported."~NW

"The wine shows a deep ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, little transparency. The nose reveals intense, clean and pleasing aromas of black cherry, blueberry, plum, carob and violet followed by pleasing aromas of walnut-husk. In the mouth has good correspondence to the nose, good balance, agreeable tannins, good body and intense flavors. The finish is persistent with flavors of black cherry and plum. It pairs well with a variety of dishes such as flavorful pastas, pizza, cheeses, grills and roasts. The ideal everyday wine!!!"~ Winery notes
