 A warrior of a varietal this grape is savage in all of its character yet graceful in the presence of the sophisticated, expressing its ability to show authentic untamed aromas of fire roasted green bell peppers, charred earth. No releasing its grip of fortitude in acid and tannin composition this wine will bleed flavors of wild violets, heated black currants, and candied black raspberries. A definite force to be revered and reckoned with.
