Wine Review: This very dark purple colored wine from Luca opens with spicy berry and musty barnyard like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, quite smooth, and well balanced with very tasty plum and light blackberry flavors. The finish is quite dry and its managed tannins are very extended. The panel would pair this wine with a big and juicy prime rib. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Incredible color could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spicy red fruit & black cherry cola aromas with notes of rose petal and cocoa. The red berry and black cherry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of black licorice keeps the mouth watering too. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, and medium-strong cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
