Well I finally had to go to the UPS center and pick up the golden ticket, sad but true! I was going to pair it with a nice filet with a cracked pepper pan sauce but was afraid it may over power the CF, so I went with a beef stew. Opened and let it stand for about 45 min. Color was a deep plum with a nose of black cherry and raspberry, maybe a little pepper. Flavors were similar to the nose with some leather and a mild earthy taste, very pleasant. I would say medium tannin, not biting with moderate alcohol which I perfer. Had a medium nicely drying finish almost herbal. I enjoyed this first glass as I finshed getting the stew to the table. The second glass with my wife and a great bowl of stew. They went together great, the meal softened the wine nicely...a good match. I was very pleased with this CF and am glad I ordered it, wish I'd gone for more. Cheers from frozen Central New York and enjoy your purchase....Sorry for the late report....Darn UPS!
