This dark, inky wine is very fruit forward and showy. Chocolate-covered red raspberries and plums enlighten your nose before luscious dark fruit, baking spices and cocoa fill your palate and carry through to the finish. This wine is very decadent, plush, dense, and full of fruit. The beautiful balance of lush fruit and a smooth approachable body will make this wine a real crowd-pleaser and the life of the party. It will pair nicely with a variety of barbequed red meats, especially brisket or ribs drenched in sauce. Lamb meatballs, swordfish, blue cheese, and raspberry brownies would also pair delightfully.
