This rich and luxurious light to medium bodied wine is layered in enticing aromas of cherry, raspberry, earth, mocha and crushed herbs. This elegant wine has a supple and velvety finish with balanced tannins, fruit and acid, pairing wonderfully with salmon, lamb, rabbit and pork or to be enjoyed on its own.
