Wine Review: This midnight purple colored wine from Arnaldo Caprai opens with a gentle, yet inviting blueberry and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black licorice with notes of black olive. I also detected hints of cherry, oak and especially espresso towards the end. The finish is rather dry and its well-endowed dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. I would decant this wine and serve it with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Densely coloured, ruby red, almost black, which develops to garnet with the ageing of the wine Aroma: Aromatically sensational, intense, with notes of mature fruit and hints of spice and aromas of vanilla transcended from the barriques Taste: Potent, soft and velvety, with a slightly bitter aftertaste Serving suggestion: Typically served with meat roasts, steak, matured cheeses game and international cuisine.

Organic status: not organic
