Just looking at this wine whets the appetite, with its dark, dense ruby color hinting at the rich fruit that awaits. The nose is ripe and lush, with a touch of oaky spice and the flavors sturdy and round. A substantial backbone means the wine can age, but it's very good now, especially if paired with duck or grilled steak.
