Why we're drinking this
You know that first walk in the woods just as the leaves are turning for the fall season and the air is fresh and crisp? That sense that life starts all over again when the crisp air touches your face? This wine is like that. It's alive, brimming with earthiness and woodsy tones. It's a big wine so get ready. It needs big food, with lots of protein and fat for those tannins to dig into. A true autumn awakened moment.
Medium body. Dark purple in colour, this unlocks a rich, dense bouquet of blackberry, plum, boysenberry, purple violet, and cocoa nib. The lush palate has smooth tannins and good overall balance, with earthy, spicy tones that linger through the finish.
