On the palate, flavors of raspberries, blackberries, cola, plum compote and toffee lead to a pleasingly lush texture. This wine shows layers of gorgeous fruit with a deep, underlying complexity that is so characteristic of this vineyard. This wine is extremely food friendly. Try it with a peppered steak, osso buco, rich tomato dishes, pasta or a selection of cheeses. This wine will cellar nicely for a goo ...more... d 7 to 12 years.
