Tasting Note

A whiff of toasty oak immediately yields to ample aromas of wild red and dark berry fruit, lifted by subtle fruits in spirits and self-confident notes of roasted espresso bean, cocoa powder, and coriander. This aromatic panoply finds beautiful echo in the mouth, where a silk-smooth texture encounters at moments expressive tannins, as they lend impressive support to the wine’s powerful but calibrated structure. Spices and hints of espresso ennoble a majestic progression.

Food Pairing

Pair with meat dishes, wild game, baked pastas, and medium-aged cheeses.


100% Merlot
