Price (each): $189.00
Plush, with velvety tannins that carry raspberry ganache, red licorice, molten chocolate and mulled spice notes. Nice hints of sandalwood, black tea and graphite fill out the finish, which just sails on. The velvety quality makes this accessible now, but try to wait. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made. –JM
