"Truly old vine, this wine is a blend of 50 different lots with an average age of 50 years. Chocolate, raspberry and vanilla bean greet you on the nose, followed by bright red fruit flavors. Dark and rich on the palate, black fruit aromas co-mingle elegantly with citrus bitters and cocoa powder. At the mid-palate through to the finish, you'll find bold but refined tannins seamlessly integrated with sweet vanilla oak, hints of dill and dusty berries. Both powerful and refined, the finesse of this wine makes it perfect for an every day sip, or a special meal."
