Deep ruby with light purple tones. Sand, cherry and violet on the nose. Blueberry, vanilla, mild mocha and dark cherry on the palate. Drying but not killer tannins. Savory medium finish, very friendly easy to come back to wine. A good go to crowd pleaser. Sip with Grilled beef burgers, flat iron steak, grilled eggplant + tomato salad, veggie burrito's from taco bell.

Medium expression of dark fruits like black currants, blackberries and blueberries, mixed with intriguing aromas of leather and tar, and notes of savoury herbs and roasted green peppers. Soft tannins. Fruit forward flavours. Medium body. Light length.
