Aromas of dark-skinned fruit, baking spice and a whiff of grilled herb lead the nose on this robust red. The full-bodied, rather one-dimensional palate offers raisin, licorice and a hint of dark bitter chocolate alongside smooth enveloping tannins. Serve with game, braised beef, pork ribs or firm aged cheeses.
