TASTING NOTES: “Let me count the ways in which this wine is black: in its spark of black rocky soil, in the darkness of its blueberry-skin tannins, in the layers of anise, blackberry and black cherry… It’s tight and as spicy as chorizo, which it would accompany well.” Joshua Greene, Wine&Spirits Mag. 2019
