Tasting Notes

Deepest red with a vibrant purple hue. So much lift and perfume. Violets, lavender and maraschino cherries lift from the glass. The palate has hallmarks of the gravels in graphite and black pepper. However, the succulence of fruit and beauty of the fruit speaks to that of a truly iconic vintage.

Food Match
Roasted garlic and thyme lamb rack, squid ink linguine
