Rich, vibrant aromas of lavender, plum, and white pepper escape from the glass of this garnet-colored wine with hints of raspberry, nutmeg and sweet tobacco following suit. Luscious flavors of cherries, red plums and strawberries are immediately evident while inherent earthiness and brown spice characteristics develop in the finish. The finely-grained tannins contribute to the silkiness on the mid-palate leading to a fresh finish that will make this wine a welcome companion to a variety of foods.
This medium-bodied and flavorful wine is a great match for grilled meats served along with wild rice. Try it with veal marsala or pork loin topped with a huckleberry red wine reduction sauce.
