Inky, opaque dark purple with a bright edge. Deep dark, aromas of black fruit, cherry and plum, with hints of black pepper, vanilla and toffee. A lovely mix of sweet, dark and savory aromas. Super inviting. Rich and fully flavored palate of boysenberry, blueberry and black cherry layered with dark cocoa and a little exotic spice of cardamom and smoke. The finish is lifted with chewy tannins and peppery spice wakes up the palate.

Anything big and bold. Spicy venison chili, turkey mole, pizza with sausage and roasted fennel, and goat cheese stuffed burgers.
