Deep garnet in color. Aromas of spicy raspberry and chocolate suggest a serious but still playful wine. Fine tannins lead to a fleshy mid-palate of dark plum, cinnamon, and crushed rock, offering a beautiful balance between new-world fruit and old-world minerality. Not just for Christmas, this wine will pair nicely with a steak dinner or a picnic on the beach.
