This intense wine is a powerful argument in favor of this often-blended, low-yielding grape garnering more attention and respect as a single bottling. Made from thirty year old vines in excellent health, the fruit was fermented in both stainless and new French oak and aged for four months on the lees before light filtration and bottling. Highly-perfumed notes of fresh herbs, mulberry and wild strawberry fruit penetrate the nose, marked by a provocative palate of more juicy mulberries, violets and licorice, laced with vibrant acidity. Pair this lovely wine with grilled meats, preferably lamb, or a lentil and chorizo stew. You might find yourself singing like a zorzal!
