Med-ruby color. Pretty, layered, complex nose with rich berry, spice, vanilla and cocoa. Jammy fruit on the entry, medium-bodied, with a smooth transition to moderate tannins on the palate. Pairings: Steaks and burgers on the grill. Lamb, roasted with rosemary, thyme, wine, olive oil and tomato paste. Dry-rubbed barbecued brisket. Oven-roasted tomatoes, onions and potatoes with herbs. The moderate fruit and balanced levels of tannins will make this wine work with a wide range of flavorful foods.
