The enticing aromas of nutmeg, leather, and cassis waft from the glass. The fruit for this dense and complex wine was sourced from the head pruned, dry farmed Vittorio Vineyard. Extracted dark fruit flavors meld with chocolate notes. Aged for 18 months in 20 percent new oak providing structured tannins notable on the long and toasty finish. Like a luxurious and rustic meal at a dude ranch, we recommend a BBQ'd Ribeye or T-Bone steak rubbed with Handley Cellars Spice Rub.
