This is a dry, medium to full-bodied wine. The nose displays aromas of dark cherry, Italian plum and violets. Notes of pepper and tobacco can be found as well.
Our Dead of Night has a well-balanced and integrated oak element that doesn’t overpower the other aspects of the wine – it integrates with, and compliments the primary characteristics of the fruit.
On the palate the wine is rich, with good acidity. The palate is consistent with the nose with its cherry and plum notes. The finish is long and generous with fine and soft tannins. The 2014 vintage shows good structure and should age well for 10 years.
Our Dead of Night pairs really well with roasted red meats or wild game. This wine, while delicious on release, will continue to improve for up to ten years of aging (or longer if in a magnum bottle).
