Light but balanced and flavorful. Just earthy & spicy enough to support beef, but drinks smoothly enough to drink on its own, despite 14%.
Z says 9.0 - 9.1 and really likes that it's organic.

Lots of layers to this. Brick red color. Starts with aromas of petrol, flavors of blackberry and briar. Then moves to cherry, tobacco, licorice with lavender aromas. Towards the end I get blueberry. Like having three separate wines over a course of less than 2 hours. Medium body and tannins, with plenty of acidity. Worked very well with red sauce lasagna. Decent with a lamb chop and portobello ravioli. — 2 days ago
