Bouquet of luscious black fruit of blueberry, blackberry, plum, and dark cherry. Light aromas of sweet coconut & mellow wood combine with an interesting twist of clean graphite. Full-bodied with balanced tannins, acidity, & bold fruit. Finishes with gravel-like minerality & a bit of smoky oak. Extended aging in French oak softens the tannins. Easily paired with a wide variety of tasty options: lamb kabobs, beef stew, or grilled stuffed Portobello mushrooms.
