Tasting Notes
An underlying layer of loganberry followed by plum, black currant and cassis fruits interwoven with vanilla, coconut and a hint of cedar. Let it breathe for an hour or so and enjoy the dark cherry nose that develops. The Big fruit, big acid and moderate oak allow this wine to be a well-balanced and hearty food-appropriate wine.

Duck confit or pork loin iwth an herbal plum & red wine reduction would be delicious matches.
