Website Information:
This inky plum colored pets displays ripe plum and juicy blueberry fruit right up front and is backed with cassis and spice. The mid-palate is full bodied with blackberry and over-ripe huckleberry that is cloaked in generous, integrated French Oak that coat the palate and finish with a velvety texture. The finish has firm yet approachable cocoa flavored tannins which will allow this wine to age well for 6-8 years.
This wine is a fine choice with grilled meats such as a NY steak au Poivre with truffled mashed potatoes and steamed haricot verts. Or try dry rub pork tenderloin with a sundried tomato, bacon, spinach and goat cheese saute. Finally, a nice vegetarian option includes a wild mushroom lasagne made with ricotta, fresh basil and organic tomatoes.
