Tasting notes

A rich, opulent, generous wine with big aromatic complexity : black cherries, blackberries, fig, cocoa powder, coffee, licorice, chinese five spice, olive jam. Round and sexy

Food pairing

Braised venison with rosemary served with a patato puree, fillet mignon with a balsamic glaze served with sauted potatoes, pepper fillet steak served with shoe string French fries. The rich fruit and coco powder aromas means this wine marries well with dark chocolate or dark chocolate desserts
