TASTING NOTES: Garnet-red with violet at the rim. The nose is elegant with meaty notes, black olives, and licorice, and the palate recalls black cherries. This is a medium- bodied wine with refreshing acidity and a long finish that faithfully portrays the typicity of the variety when grown in a cold climate.
FOOD PAIRING: Suggestions: excellent with red meats and roasted vegetables, grilled lamb, and shwarma, as well as with dishes seasoned meats black pepper, cloves, or cumin, which heighted the fruit in this wine. Also very good with aged and blue cheeses.
