tasting note

Ripe fresh cherry melds with floral honeysuckle and lavender notes and black pepper. The satin like texture gives way to fleshy, vibrant blueberry fruit. The palate finishes with some charcoal and flint to add mineral interest and complexity.

food pairing

Excellent with steak or grilled read meats.
