Deep black cherry fruit, dried cranberry, orange zest, berry patch in the sun! Dusty, vanilla-caramel oak, graham crackers, and cocoa. Fragrant Moroccan-Asian spices—Chinese 5-spice mélange… Mouthfeel is creamy yet tangy bright cherry, firm-sturdy tannins and a long, lush finish. Super concentrated. Quite drinkable now, but will age a good 15-20 years. Very mouthfilling!
Food Pairings: Grilled meats, burgers, barbecue; Cheddar, Manchego, Gouda cheese
