This is a very food friendly wine because of the relatively lower alcohol (14.2%), small percentage of new oak barrels (12%) and relatively high acidity. The nose is typical for this variety with intense dark cherry and blueberry aromas supported by nuances of herbs and peppers. The mouth feel is fresh and juicy, with long, slightly tannic finish that begs for another sip or two. Enjoy with variety of meat dishes and particularly with leg of lamb with Mediterranean herbs rub. Enjoy now or age for another 3-7 years.
