" With an inky purple hue, the aromas start with muddled blackberry and vanilla bean leading to fresh mission fig and black cherry. Deeper aroma layers show toasted sage and sandalwood. On the entry to the palate, flavors include dark chocolate covered cherries with hints of espresso bean, molasses, toasted cardamom, dried cherries and blueberries. The rich and slightly drying finish drives the wine toward the signature oak notes with deep toast and hints of coconut and dark caramel notes.
Bold and flavorful, pair this wine with lamb sliders topped with balsamic glazed onion relish, a strip steak seared with a peppercorn cream sauce alongside roasted root vegetables, or your favorite wood fired pepperoni pizza. " ~ Winery notes
