Garnet core of medium density which spreads out to a stunning bright crimson lip.
Blackberry, bramble, vanilla, cedar, and allspice.
Black cherry, red cherry, boysenberry and blackberry, wild strawberry, and cigar box.
Fruit driven by a nice bright acidity while the mature tannin carries it forward for a long lasting finish.
This hedonistic fruit bomb will stack up perfectly against our mouth watering slow-cooked Carolina-style Pulled Pork Sandwich.
