This very rare grape is called a teinturier, meaning that both the grape skins and flesh are red, which make this wine both full bodied and very intense in color (also very high in antioxidants!). The wine was aged in 20% new French Oak, 20% three-times used American oak, and 60% neutral French Oak barrels, which lend its sweet, smokey aromas, roasted fennel, and black fruit characteristics. The thick skins and early harvesting give this wine amazing structure of both tannin and acid.
Pair with spiced and herb-heavy dishes, such as roasted meats and vegetables.
