Aromas of mulled berry followed by dark berry fruit and significant additional spice notes fill out the expressive and vibrant nose of this 2007 blend. Black mission fig leads the palate along with a combination of fresh and dried fruit notes. Cranberry, cherry and both red and dark plum are prominent. Sour cherry, blackberry pie and black pepper emerge in the finish and provide lasting flavors that linger well after the last sip is gone. This wine has terrifc acidity and will be an excellent match for a wide array of full flavored foods.
