Some intense savory notes that I didn't find particularly pleasant.

This is a blackberry and chocolate medium bodied wine with some pepper and currants on the short finish. The tannins have mellowed nicely and would pair well with a pizza or hamburger.

Out of the bottle it had a bit of a hard edge on the finish, but with some air, it softened slightly and paired nicely with the grilled steak.
