Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored wine opens with a smoky oak, flint, and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused blueberry with hints of coffee and gentle plum. The finish is dry and its fruit and old oak tannins linger nicely. This wine would pair well beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fine spices and dark chocolate infused liquorice surprise on the nose. Tasting this aromatic and delicately concentrated wine reveals blackcurrant, dried plumbs and fresh rose petals. A hint of black pepper with a dash of rocket salad leaves finishes the taste sensation. This wine is well structured and held up by a firm but elegant tannins that has a soft and sweet finish as it tip toes down your throat. The 2009 vintage may be paired with robust meats and aroma filled red meat dishes.
