Suggested retail price $75-$82
Imported/Distributed by Winebow in NYC

The 2007 vintage has been highly acclaimed by the press and most wine critics as one of the best of last decade with 2005. The resulting wine is quite approachable yet it shows fantastic ageing potential and depth. The color is dense ruby purple. The perfumy nose offers layers of aromas going from sea breezes, licorice and ground pepper, to earthy and jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums. The palate is quite full-bodied, rich and generous with lots of sweet, ripe tannin and earthiness. The finish is long and structured. A great wine to cellar for the next 4-6 years and even longer depending on how patient you will be.
