During this wine's youth, we suggest coaxing its aromatics and flavors to the fore by gently swirling it in the glass, to increase the exposure to oxygen. Swirl and then savor the welcoming scents of dried rose petals, smoke, and sandalwood, followed by hints of green olive, date, black pepper, and cedar. This rich array is echoed in the mouth, which fills with flavors of vanilla, olives, sandalwood, and black cherry. The wine's complexity continues to unfold as the finish slowly, gracefully recedes. Time will take this wondrous wine to even greater heights. For now, pair it with penne tossed with roasted eggplant and late summer heirloom tomatoes, generously topped with shaved Parmesan cheese, or a skirt steak marinated in garlic-spiked olive oil, then grilled over wood.
