Great BBQ wine. Had with a chipotle Venison Burger. Rich chewy mouth feel. Moderate ABV for. Zin based wine. A bit jammy of the black fruit variety with spices like clove and pepper. Very enjoyable and great with the food.
Crimson color with appealing ripe mixed black and red fruits, spice, bramble and a hint of leather aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with soft well integrated sweet tannins, , very good acidity and plum, blackberry, black cherry, and spice finish and a lingering satisfying finish.
With left-over Orzo-Ricotta meatballs and marinara sauce. Pretty crimson, clear, clean, not quite opaque. Nose shows pepper, dried fruit (perhaps blackberry). Palate is following the nose, with added touch of anise. Good balance, clean, a bit spicy underneath the pepper (clove?), some power to this one but not over-powering. Better than the Rocca with the meatballs - worked very well with the food. Hit this one at its peak.
