This wine has a fragrant nose of cassis, blackberry and licorice. A hint of black pepper also comes through. On the palate a large serving of dark fruit hits first, with sweet oak spice and a savory note of earth. The tannins are easy enough on the mouthfeel, but firm enough to serve a purpose at the table. The savory aspect lingers on the generous finish.

This is a big wine. High tannin, ripe black fruits, peppery, and oaky. It should be paired with heavy dish.
