Non-fruit complexity of intriguing allspice, tobacco, black tea, and lilac frames the aroma supported by dark fruited notes of blackberry, plum and blackcurrant. The palate opens with medium body, slowly increasing in fullness as structured tannins build. Juicy acid balances the mouthfeel with flavors of bittersweet chocolate and lingering plum skin. The intensity of this wine carries into a medium-long finish of age-worthy tannins and youthful acidity that will complement rich protein dishes of similar heft.
