Conjure an occasion for friendly conversation among friends, colleagues, or loved ones, then pair the moment with this wine. Share the intensity of blackberries, plums, and figs. Discuss the concentration and the density of fruit as boysenberries and black currants chime in at the mid-palate. This wine is firm yet expressive, Asian spices, sage, and cassis join the exchange at the margins. It’s got length on the finish, taking appropriate leave when all is said and done.
