Tasting Notes

Vivid ruby-red. Intensely perfumed, mineral-driven red berry, blood orange and potpourri aromas are complemented by deeper-pitched notes of cola and smoky Indian spices. Sweet, focused and light on its feet, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a silky, seamless texture. The mineral quality comes back on the endless finish, which is strikingly pure, focused and gently tannic. I was reminded of a high-end Chambolle-Musigny when I tasted this balanced but intensely flavored wine and suspect that it will age slowly and gracefully over at least the coming decade. 95 points from Stephen Tanzer.

Provenance

This prestigious collection comes to IronGate.Wine from a revered connoisseur and long-time wine collector. Lover of US wines, he began collecting as soon as he realized he could ship his wines back to his home in Canada. This was not done without struggle, and as the quantity of bottles allowed to be imported back to Canada were limited, it was time to find a safe haven for his ever-growing assembly of fine wine.
