A medium-bodied expression of this classic Bordeaux variety. Soft, silky tannins support aromas of cassis, pomegranate and vanilla, leading up to a subtle oak and berry coconut finish. It is a great match for savory, roasted-style dishes and stews. Enjoy with some dark chocolate morsels for a delightfully decadent experience.
