"Rich and structured, yet still expressive. Lavishly oaked, with toast and coffee notes, this red still showcases its wild berry and ripe plum fruit flavors on a plush, velvety structure. Best from 2004 through 2010. 500 cases made.
A seventh wine originally intended for 'Bembibre' proved so outstanding it was aged and bottled on its own. Ungrafted centenarian hillside vines, selection and aging regimen as for 'Bembibre', but with an intensity of terroir/minerality that simply refuses to marry with the oak, screaming its iodine/black fruit presence at full force.
