This mellow red will surely please at your next casual gathering. The nose is filled with sweet wild raspbery, vanilla and spicy oak character. This is medium-bodied, fruit-filled, slightly spicy and ending with balancing acidity and silky tannins. Drink now with veal scallopini and roasted root vegetables. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2008)
