Aromas of black plum, cherry, rhubarb and hints of earth and loam. Flavors of red plum, raspberry and blood orange are underpinned by distinctive river stone minerality and savory umami character. Plush and richly textured with juicy, yet balanced acidity and integrated toasty barrel spice. Try Italian sausage with peppers and onions, mushroom risotto, or anything with gruyere. A simple grilled chicken or fish is sublime with this wine.

Wine EnthusiastHibiscus, sumac, pepper and vanilla aromas show on the nose of this widely available bottling, which works as a midweek sipper. The fruit is fairly ripe and extracted, showing flavors of orange-cranberry juice, although the mouthfeel remains a bit thin.
