ITEM 8304935 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased at auction
Dense purple to the rim with an extraordinary perfume of blueberry pie, blackberries, soy, Asian spices, and hints of forest floor and charcoal, this is a complex, rich, seamless, well-balanced tour de force in winemaking.
.amazingly detailed wine, deep, rich and layered, musclebound yet graceful. It’s packed with dense, focused, pure mineral, blackberry, toasty oak and roasted coffee flavors that end in a long cascade, veering into chocolate malt ball notes.
Captivating, varietally expressive nose melds cassis, boysenberry, olive tapenade, cracked pepper, licorice and Indian spices. Suave, velvety and deeply concentrated, with restrained sweetness for a wine with this much power and thrust.
Has a smoky, toasted scent to finish, which is controlled and integrated. Pure fruit.
