Gorgeously ripened black fruit aromas leap from the glass, framed by the warm clove and cinnamon spice notes of the Tokaji barrels. There is an indelible pedigree and power to this wine, as it is as dark in color and plush in texture as one can imagine a wine to be. This character comes from the drought-suffering berries which really struggled to grow to full size, and in the final days of the season, lost a fifth of their weight due to evaporation from an astonishing dry spell. But it was precisely these conditions that provided the power, weight and density that makes this wine extraordinary. It is a show stopper.
“Firm in texture… expansive and generous in flavor… licorice-accented blackberry, cherry, tar flavors… focus, intensity, fine tannins. Shows depth and power, finishing long and vibrant.” -Harvey Steiman
