Served following aeration and 1-hr decant with Beef Tri-Tip, Broccoli, Mashed Potatoes and Green Salad.

Garnet red on the pour; lovely, clear, ruby-red in the glass. Fragrant Nose of Cherry & Raspberry with hint of Strawberry. Medium body, yet full-Flavored. Robust, with notes of leather, tobacco and spices. Ample acidity (high) with moderate, but surprisingly grippy tannins after the initial burst of flavor. Pleasantly tart, lingering finish. Refined, yet retaining a modicum of Rusticity, characteristic of the varietal.
