Hailing from old vines planted between 1940-1955, this wine is an insane value! Explosive aromas of toasty char, cigar box, sweet candied licorice, black plum, and black berry, the wine also shows beautifully integrated tannins and acidity, with a long, firm finish. This is a wine that's drinking extremely well right now, and will hold for several years. Impress your wine snob friends with this one!
