 " What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet", when speaking of this grape variety, would suggest that it does, in fact, go by many names. One thing remains the vitality and vivaciousness that sustains the complexity of this variety holds firm in its acidity and strength in tannin. In its youth has the ability to be awkward yet spry and rambunctious with aromas of crushed black pepper and spice yet silky finesse and velvety black cherries show in the throughout its age.
