Drank with rosemary-garlic grilled Heritage Farms pork chops, gnocchi with Cremini mushrooms, a lovely salad topped with 7 Dec-picked green beans from the garden. I post the foods because the freshly ground pepper in the wine played really well with the garlic and the green herbal quality was great with the rosemary. There is a nicely retained dark red fruit component and a little menthol. The wine is not very complex, but certainly "correct." I don't get any heat despite the 14.5 ABV. All in all I would say that this is a fun drink once per year.
