The 2014 POV opens with floral aromas of violet and rosemary, followed by a fruit stand of aromas and flavors reminiscent of blackberry, black plum, currant and black cherry. The primary fruit notes lead into more complex and earthier notes of black olive, sage, star anise, cocoa and a hint of vanilla that softens an otherwise youthful flavor profile.

Cold weather triggers my desire for a well-crafted red with just the right texture, bright fruit and beautiful acidity to tackle a plateful of crunchy, salty-good schnitzel.
