Description: Deep ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features cedar, cherry, red currants, dried berries, smoked cherry tobacco and violets on the nose. Medium+ body with medium tannin, good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Note: Reminds me of my teen years during summers when I tried Colts cigars
Drink now or in the next 5-7 of years, on its own or pair it with Roast Chicken with Thyme and Onions.
