Colour: Ruby red in colour.
Nose: The nose on this ruby colored wine is heavy with cherry, plum, oak, and minerals.
Palate: The mouth starts off over tannic, but it smooths out over time, to an almost mouth coating consistency. It is followed by rich plum and cherry flavors. The mid palate starts off very acidic, almost astringent, but the acidity clams down, into a rich and balanced mid palate.
Finish: Long with more red fruit, spicy notes, and slight mineral/earthy finish.
Food pairing: Drink with grilled meat, and french cheese, Chinese roasted duck or pigeon accompanied with pepper salt, Hayashi (Japanese Curry) and Korean Bimbimbop (Beef with fried eggs).
