This is a bottle that will betray your senses. The nose introduces itself with a bowl of dried currants served in a fine cigar box. The profile teases with cranberry that moves into a whirlwind of currant and stewed fruits in the middle. The finish turns off the fruit and presents instead pure leather and allspice, with just a hint of bay leaf. Pair this wine with a succulent Peking duck or a Charcuterie plate with Spanish ham and tangy blue cheese.
