SKU: DANLESSSHI19
This wine's symmetry of aroma and bouquets and of primary and secondary flavours make it wonderfully versatile when it comes to guests, foodstuffs, and politics. Complex stews, communist tendencies, or people you met the other day on the beach - it will suit and salve and solve. Drink it hedonistically now or keep it for a handful of years, but please observe one indubitable requirement: cutlery.

”Open-vat fermentation and maturation in older French and American barriques for 18 months. This is akin to an old-school warm-climate wine, with an contemporary reductive edge. Aromas of carob, eucalyptus, bitter chocolate, raspberry bon-bon and maraschino cherry prowl about the palate, full and dense. The finish, at least at this early stage, is clipped by oak tannin. Yet this will win the hearts of true believers, or newer drinkers seeking insight into the way things once were, with a bit of a twist.”
