Wine Review: This pitch black colored red blend opens with a unique black olive and eucalyptus bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. Its flavor profile is black olive, black cherry and espresso with hints of fig and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are dusty and slightly sticky. This wine is very Old World in style. It would be perfect with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Coyam is an intense violet plum red in color with a nose that expresses aromas of ripe red fruits, plums, berries, and black fruits that meld elegantly with notes of spice, earth, and a touch of sweet vanilla. Well balanced and big bodied on the palate, with good structure and soft, round tannins. An intense, complex wine full of character. Recommended for cellaring. Big-bodied red wines like this one, should be accompanied by full flavored dishes such as: Wagyu Rib-eye with potatoes au gratin.
