Ruby red in color, this wine offers intoxicating aromas of dried black cherries, cassis, truffles, and chocolate fudge. On the palate, it is silky, luscious, and complex, with a lingering finish.
Pair with osso bucco, Bordelaise sauces, wild boar ravioli, or grilled cowboy ribeyes.
JS94 James Suckling
While this is heady and spicy, it’s also quite reserved for this producer, framing glazed cherries and dried meat against a backdrop of citrus and roasted herbs. The ornately woven texture and generous fruit work very well with the linear acidity and firm-tannin bite. Really excellent.
WS90 Wine Spectator
This is well-balanced and medium- to full-bodied, layering creamy tannins with a juicy profile of ripe black raspberry and currant fruit, woodsy spice, minerally graphite and smoke notes. Accessible and elegant. Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta and Croatina. Drink now through 2025.
