This medium-bodied bottle of wine delivered with plenty of ripe fruit. But it wasn’t nearly as jammy or plummy as I had expected; instead, it was juicy with dark berries, cassis and yummy pepper. The finish, while not terribly long, was pleasant and memorable. A perfect pairing to our dinner of slow-cooked ribs, baked beans, rice and salad.
