Earth, spice, pepper, anise, dried red flowers, cola, hints of pomegranate and deep black cherries - draped over firm and vibrant acidity. Pure elegance in a bottle. Superb after a bit of breathing, and definitely made for aging. The wine was aged 22 months in a 1/3 new, 1/3 year-old and 1/3 neutral French barrels. Only 150 cases produced.
