    The extra year our 2009 spent in the barrel has imparted a hint of earthiness, a balanced smokiness that pairs well with food. Each trip to the glass brings a nuance of a new layer to experience. This delicious wine is drinking well now and should show its juicy nose and well balanced palate for several years to come.
