Notes of Cinnamon candy, red hots, Big Red gum, tomato leaf and cranberry. Raspberry and wild cherry, red plum, and floral notes, of red roses and lavender. Luxardo cherry syrup and roasted rhubarb aromas.
Full bodied, with ripe fruit and an unbelievable long, fruity, complex finish. The wine has ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavors, but more ripe and candy like, making each taste satisfying, and the bright acidity draws the taster back in for another sip. Hints of smoke, meaty, like grilled mush- room and roast pork in the oven. Cherry compote and chutney, potpourri, roasted rhubarb, red plum, etc., etc. The complexity of this wine is quite amazing.
This wine would be amazing with a complex dish of roasted fish and olive and tomatoes, amazing also with wild boar or roasted duck in cherry sauce.
