Simmering with fresh aromas of red currant, red raspberry, elderberries and a smack of tobacco leaf, and flooding the palate with juicy flavors of caramel, butterscotch and raspberry fudge, the assertive core of acidity weaves tangy blueberries and red licorice throughout. Perfect for pairing with complex, layered foods, like braised duck with radicchio and fennel over butternut squash polenta.
