Cherry and cocoa aromas, along with plums, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, and black pepper spice notes on the palate define this satisfying wine.  it’s light to medium bodied with a toasted almond finish.  Drink now or lay down for a special occasion because it’s very age-worthy.  This very flexible wine can be paired with pizza, pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, grilled chicken and roasted ham.
