This wine is deep purple with a bright fuscia rim. The nose is expressive, with aromas of red cherry and sage with a hint of violet, spice and toast. The wine is full-bodied, packed with flavors of raspberry and black cherry, along with notes of violet and toast from the oak. Supple tannins carry through to a fine and smooth finish. Favorite pairings for this wine include Braised Short Ribs, Lasagna Bolognese and Pan Roasted Rack of Lamb.
