Upon opening the bottle, I was greeted with the aromas of dark chocolate, cola and leather. As I swirled my glass, I picked up notes of vanilla and toasted oak. Then came my first sip. I was pleasantly greeted by the warm flavors of tobacco and blueberry and beautiful soft tannins.
This wine would be the perfect pairing for a juicy burger, a big steak or a rich chocolate dessert. I definitely will be buying more to share this holiday season. Plus, the packaging makes for the perfect impressive gift for that special someone! I could not recommend this wine more.
