Deep, profound ruby in color. A good swirl in the glass opens the fruit's distinct foresty flavors and crispness. Age brings notes of underbrush and spicy tobacco. Rich and chewy in the mouth it becomes attractively rounded and meaty with age. The sun of 2016 gives ripeness to drink now, but also a keeper if you enjoy earthy wine.
Pairs well with beef rib steaks; beef or lamb joints braised in sauce; roast pork; poultry-based stews
