A declassified beauty right here. Thus had so much structure and was just a fantastic bottle of wine.

Beautifully structured juice. Nose of leather, black fruits and sage, with some tannins, but low alcohol and easy drinking. And an amazing value. This wine typifies why Chambers Street Wines is the best store in NYC.

"Harry, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just let it happen. Could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee. Like this." - Dale Cooper #tgiff #gamaylife #naturalwine

Probably better if it was chilled for a bit. Light, middle of the road. Recommended by Eben at Chambers Street.
