This wine did not blow my socks off at first, but its subtlety and elegance won me over with time.

I paired it with mushroom truffle risotto as recommended, and it was great.

The colour is borderline garnet, a well-balanced mix of dark cherries, spice, flowers and wood.

I echo the note that the balanced acidity is well integrated on the long finish.
