"A very meaty, spicy Taurasi with cedary and tarry accents, highlighting more fruit-driven elements of blackberries and dark cherries. It’s really deep and dense, but remarkably polished and agile for a wine of 15% alcohol and nearly 7 years of age. There’s tension and beauty here, not simply raw power and opulence. Drink now."

"Moderately saturated red-ruby. Musky aromas of red currant, aromatic herbs, spices and flint. Smooth and fine-grained, conveying a distinctly refined quality to the big, juicy red cherry and sweet spice flavors. Showcases outstanding balance and length, finishing with solid extract and excellent length."
