Deep garnet colour with a lovely bouquet of dark plum, black cherry, roasted coffee beans, baking spice, sweet oak and dark chocolate.
This is a dry, full-bodied wine with soft drying tannins and a juicy, smooth mouth-feel. Baked plum, black fruits and spice fill the mouth. The extra-dry lingering finish shows notes of black tea, cocoa, spice and blackberry.
Enjoy with peppercorn steaks; braised meats; spiced London broils; red meats in rich reductions; winter stews; game meats; short ribs; beef brisket; saucy barbecued ribs; Beemster 18-month aged Gouda.
