Patrick's Take: An approachable wine to enjoy by the glass or with meals, that is both unique and intriguingly satisfying. You'll find aromas of black fruits with flavors of wild blackberry, an earthy dustiness and dark chocolate. A sexy sipping wine. It has great cellaring potential of up to 8 years, but feel free to enjoy now.
