Rich, dark, and complex, this will compliment the richest meals. The nose has deep plums, raspberry, pepper, and spice. Plums, cassis, and raspberry lead on the palate, with mocha underneath. Raspberry, black pepper, and allspice come through on the mid-palate. The finish lingers. Lightly drying tannins are matched by acids. Pair with osso buco.* Highly Recommended (91). DH
