"Like our Tannat Dessert wine, it to instills a calmness with its polished tannins, radiant yet amber purple hue and its honey like texture. Touched with a bouquet of winter flowers, Madagascan vanilla bean and wild apple mint indulged with a warmth and savor of white cacao souffle. As the story ends with tranquility, so does the longsome finish of our wine." -Importer
Wow - this is a pretty intense, thick, gloupy, syrupy wine. Licoice, chocolate and vanilla bean.
Had this with an intense chocolate cake at BLT Prime in NYC. It was astounding; a perfect match for the cake. The wine carried flavors of chocolate, cherry, caramel, vanilla and dried figs and played off the flavors of the dessert perfectly.
A really unusual wine, great for chocolate desserts.
