Blueberries lead the aromatics with black cherry and plum. Subtle accents of vanilla, cedar and tobacco. Reflecting the 2012 season, this wine offers structure and body that exemplifies how this variety ideally reflects a temperate viticultural home and careful treatment. Some of the aromas are echoed on the palate with blueberry and plum up front, with lingering cedar and vanilla. Plush mouth feel with firm tannins leading to a drawn out intense finish. Extremely versatile, it would pair impressively with tomato-sauced signature pasta dishes and gourmet pizza to grilled salmon, duck breast, venison or turkey.
