Semitransparent rich ruby red wine with a nose of ripe plums, raisins, and a rich background of dark fruit, epecially black raspberry. This medium-bodied wine caresses the mid-palate with a stimulating embrace of smooth tannins
. A nicely balanced wine with good dark fruits and balancing acidity. A nice long fruity finish with a touch of lingering dry tannins on the back of the tongue. Great food wine that matched well with penne and meatballs with a stir-fried red pepper and zuchinni tomato sauce. Also good sipper. International style, IMO.
My new house red.
