Opaque ruby core edged by a brightly youthful magenta-colored rim. You don't need to be one (connoisseur or expert) to pick up on this wine's heavenly smoky aromas intermingled with hints of vanilla, plums, blackberries, and cinnamon spice. Plush core of dense, sweetly ripe dark fruit, laced with chocolate and spice. Generously rich flavors underpinned by supple oak tannins and bright acidity, leading to a full, dry and savory finish. One sip and you'll know (have savoir faire or knowlege) that this wine pairs excellently with red meats and is a perfect accompaniment to dinner with friends.
