The gorgeous packaging of the Antiquum Farm wines does not over-promise: the same attention to detail is in the bottle. A ripe and fruity expression of a full-bodied vintage, this bursts with forward, fresh blackberry and cherry fruit goodness. There's a dash of clean earth, and suggestions of coffee and licorice as well. It's thoroughly delicious.
