Tasting:

    Opened one hour before drinking. Dark ruby color with a light purple rim. Powerful damp earth, ripe raspberry, cherry and licorice aromas. Gamey, savory, medium to full body and a 80-grit texture. Robust ripe plum, blackberry, dark cherry, pepper and slightly licorice flavors. Lots of edgy acidity, firm well integrated tannins and a long spicy finish. WOW…this was fragrant, mouthwatering and energetic wine. Perfect paired with the potent lamb flavors. A delicious wine with lots of character.
