Dusty black ruby color. Interesting aromas and flavors of warm dates, espresso dusted blueberries, pimento, raspberry candy, root beer, black olive, and white balsamic with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a graceful, delightful, medium-length finish with overtones of marinated carrots, dill, and graphite with moderate oak flavor. A distinctive red with bold acidity that will make for exciting pairings.
