Have had this NV bottle for 2 or 3 years. Just found it lurking in the back of the cellar. Was expecting to pop it, taste it, and dump it. Pleasantly surprised. Fruit forward as I expected, but it has some body...and has some good spiciness going on. Very long sweet fruity finish with a touch of oak. Pairs beautifully with olives. Weird.
Dark garnet color. Spicy vanilla, black plum, licorice, and mulberry nose. A cassis and black plum entry expands to a melange of black raspberry, pie cherry, mushroom and cocoa flavors that linger with just enough tannic "grip" to maintain a balanced finish. Thai green curry, French fried zucchini chips, fish tacos, burritos de carnitas, osso bucco, anything hot off the barby, and entrecote de boeuf.
