Taste Flavorful, firm and powerful with a good balance between sweetness and acidity. This full-bodied wine tastes of juicy black fruit, roasted coffee, vanilla; very complex with a long finish. Alcohol 14.1% Serving Suggestions Well-matched with red meats, ribs in barbecue sauce, roast beef, hearty casseroles or stews, and flavorful hard cheeses.
