This wine spent 6 whole years developing in the winery before it was ever released for consumption. 21 days of maceration before 2 years in large oak barrels before another 4 years in bottle. The maturation is present on the palate in the wine’s more developed fruit flavors. The taste is not of fresh cherries, but cherries stewed and simmered with anise and sage. There’s a scent of freshly laid asphalt, and flavors of autumn leaves, smoke, and something akin to blood sausage. As the wine develops in the glass, baker’s chocolate and rounder tones emerge. The finish is long, and it lingers.
