Vivid garnet. Cherry pit, red currant, cigar box, coconut and floral qualities on the fragrant nose. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering appealingly sweet red fruit, candied rose, cola and licorice flavors and a building vanilla quality. Closes long and spicy, with a repeating cherry note and supple tannins that lend discreet grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2021)

I like this wine. But it needs to be open for about an hour. At first, I was disappointed. It was a little hot and barnyardy. But then the fruit came out, and it was like a delicious cherry vanilla cola.

(16.5/20) Аромат сухой вишни, брусники, душицы, гвоздики, жареных каштанов, грибов и подлеска. Умеренные тельность и кислотность, гладкие танины. Во вкусе добавляется шоколад. Очень неплохо.

1964 mystery bottle and very good for a relative unknown bodega these days.
