Aromas of vanilla bean, ripe red plum and tea rose. Flavors of wild strawberry, chocolate-covered cherry and anise. Finely knit tannins and lingering sweet spice on the finish.
Think classics with a twist here such as herbs de Provence roast chicken, tea-smoked duck, or cream of mushroom soup with sherry and thyme. A charcuterie plate with dried cherries would not be amiss!
