This is a desert wine from one of the world's great winemakers. At age 19, this is fresh and drinking great. Tasted from a 375ml bottle. Purple in color with ruby hues. The nose is pretty with black cherries, dried red currants, slight mint and milk chocolate. Full bodied and viscous. Sweet but nowhere near cloying. On the palate, this is rich with cherries, black cherries, slight simple syrup, dried herbs and slight alcohol. Long finish. This is complex, contemplative and also delicious. It should easily go another decade or more. This is one to sip a small glass with on its own, but it would work with a not too sweet chocolate dessert.
