The experience of this wine feels to me like walking deep into the woods and finding a cigar box made of cedar. You open it, and find that it is filled with mouthwatering plums, black cherries, and peppercorn laid upon eucalyptus leaves, walnuts, and chocolate. There is flint nearby to start a fire, and a bench to sit and savor this wine for a long time. Yes, forgive me, this wine makes me want to write poetry. Mouthcoating, a deep earthiness, with a long finish and perfect balance.
Pair with coq au vin, roast chicken or duck, grilled asparagus or artichokes, vegetable lasagna.
