A rich spicy blend of ripe berries offers playful, tempting aromatics that invite you to sip. The spice and fruit found the nose continue on the palate with a bright core of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry and cherry woven with the perfect sprinkling of black pepper and baking spices. Hints of mineral, cedar, tobacco and dusty mocha, along with dark undertones from the integrated tannins and oak, provide depth and complexity while balancing the bright flavors. Enjoy this delicious Rhône blend with stuffed pork tenderloin served with a basmati and wild rice pilaf, or Steak Diane with broasted potato wedges.
