Tasting Notes
Visually stunning with a deep onyx core and magenta rim. True to its name, this is a BIG wine, loaded with succulent, ripe, juicy fruit commingled with a bouquet of purple flowers leading to an intriguing blend of forest floor funk and fragrant crème de cassis. Lusciously fruit forward with black fruits galore, toasted brioche, and crumble laced with grape and wood tannin and a trace of subtle green pepper. Time in the glass reveals dried autumn leaves, fig, and winter spiced cocoa. Mouthfeel is supple, deep, and rich with delicate fine tannins and a long, lingering finish. Pair with a hearty pepper crusted filet and all the trimmings, or your favorite. Drink now through 2033.
