Tasting Notes
A quick swirl of the glass shows off its deep garnet color and portends its silky mouth feel while energizing a beautiful nose of honeysuckle, blueberry and rich coriander. Soft, very fine tannins glide across the palate escorting baked blackberry, fresh ripe blueberry, a shaving of orange zest accompanied by sweet baking spice and a finger pinch of fresh cigarette tobacco. This is a perfect pairing for Moroccan lamb.

-Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
