This was the wine that I have been anticipating having again since the first time that I had it two months ago. This wine is the perfect mixture of dry and wet. When you taste it, you are hit with an overpowering pepper that blends into a concoction of dark red fruits; plums/currants and cherries.

It is both dry, yet somewhere between medium and full bodied, with low tannins and yet a taste that begs for something red, whether sauce or meat, and spicy. This actually would go phenomenally with cured meats, or equally with a dessert that makes use of cinnamon. Ginger and nutmeg based dishes would also be great mixtures as well.
