On the nose. A lot of spice, darker fruit, spicy fig compote, Indian blood peach, stone fruits, lots of wet slate. Mouth is tight and structured, elegant, lots of fruit up front, ripe black currant, cassis. More white pepper than black pepper. Long and savory finish with tobacco.
Pair with Ethiopian goat curry, a rare tomahawk chop, south American steak with churasco/chimi-churri stuff. -- Winemaker's notes
