Notes

 
FOOD PAIRING:
Delightful when paired with duck in a cherry sauce, blue cheese, or even a good cigar. But it is at its best with desserts containing fruits or chocolate.
 
TASTING NOTES:
Brilliant color with deep garnet reflections. A complex nose with aromas of blackberry, fresh fig. After a few years, notes of cocoa develop as well. Beautiful mouth and good structure.
