A rich, opulent, generous wine with big aromatic complexity: black cherries, blackberries, fig, cocoa powder, coffee, licorice, chinese five spice, olive jam. Round and sexy.
Braised venison with rosemary served with a patato puree, fillet mignon with a balsamic glaze served with sauted potatoes, pepper fillet steak served with shoe string French fries. The rich fruit and coco powder aromas means this wine marries well with dark chocolate or dark chocolate desserts.
Vines are 90 – 115 years old.
Century old Grenache
"Lovely raspberry and plum fruit takes a gentle mulled profile, picking up light anise and incense accents along the way. Silky but substantial tannins underscore the finish, while a pretty mineral edge chimes through. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2019 through 2035. 150 cases made, 50 cases imported." - 94 points, James Molesworth, Senior Editor and Special Projects Director at Wine Spectator
