Anyway, this wine was very pleasant. It was a very dark crimson in the glass and had aromas of big fruit like dark cherries and strawberries. On the palate there were some hints of chocolate and coffee. The finish was long and slow as the smooth tannins lingered. This wine would pair well with rich meat dishes like lamb or a hearty stew. It was a treat for us and we are so glad Mike and Kelley shared this gem with us.
