Pairing: My husband grilled up some burgers and zucchini to enjoy one of the last warm evenings of summer. The Indica was a great match for the burgers. It had enough acid and body to stand up to the burger, but was very easy drinking and would have also been delicious without food. We finished off the meal with some Ghirardelli dark chocolate, which was a lovely pairing as well.
Scent: Dark fruit and leather
Flavors: Blackberries (a bit jammy) and more earthy, than leather on the taste
Finish: Medium (4-5 sec)
