Enjoy with 2 year old Canadian cheddar and Grana Padano cheese; beef tenderloin in rich red wine reduction, or topped with melted blue cheese or rich melted butter; grilled red meats (medium to medium-rare); rosemary lamb chops; pot roast.
Loose crush, gentle but complete extraction of the fruit. Warm fermentation. Aged 13 months in American oak barrels.
