Aromas of white pepper, sweet spice, dried strawberry, orange peel, and dusty red fruit lure you into the large, bright and energetic flavors of blue fruits, plum, raspberry and tea leaf. Fine grained yet powerful, taught tannins suggest laying this wine down for several years, or enjoying with a big steak anytime.
