This is one of our most unique and complex varietals. Aromas of bell pepper, paprika, earth, and hay explode on the nose. Herbal, peppercorn flavors layer with leather, black plum and raspberry, finishing with tobacco, bell pepper, and vanilla. Soft tannins, pleasant acidity, and medium body make it easy to drink alone or paired with spicy foods.
