This wine is a fantastic blend of nearly equal parts Souson, Caino Longo and Brancellao that was aged in stainless steel for 11 months and then bottle aged for an additional 4-5 months prior to release in early 2017. This deep-hued wine opens with a bouquet of sage, black pepper, black cherry, black plum, creosote and loganberry liquor.
The exceedingly dense and lush nose brings you back to the glass for more. The minerality is striking as it blends beautifully into the integrated flavors of red cherry, black forest cake, smoked pork shoulder, black plum, dark chocolate shavings and suggestions of wet gravel. Polished, intense and lithe, this will have a nice future. Decant and enjoy now or cellar until 2028.
