From 125 year-old vines, this is a composed, low-toned, rich red. Complex, intense, and smooth.
Very dark black-ruby. Complex nose of toasted baking spices, rich blackberry, and pungent rock dust. Low-toned and quite concentrated, this wine has rich flavors of ripe blackberry and dark minerals. Pretty good acids for such a weighty wine. Very full, and there's very slight peppery bite of alcohol at the end (heck, it is 15.2% for Pete's sake). This will drink nicely for at least another 2 years, maybe more -- but with wines with this much alcohol, I'm always nervous about long aging, because the alcohol seems to take over after a few years and burn through the fruit. B+. Got this for $22 and change from Wineaccess.com as part of a mixed half-case of Three Wine Company wine
several months ago.
