2008 Eclipse Red
Cloves and leather dominate the nose at first, then after some aeration notes of cherry and black currant join in with hints of cracked white pepper. In the palate, the wine has a generous body complemented by notes of toasted oak and tobacco. Supple tannins enhance a smooth and long finish.
This wine can be enjoyed now with any grilled meat, pasta dish and soft cheeses. Once cellared for a few years, it will pair well with beef stew and blue cheese.
