Produced from four parcels of 100-year-old vines, this field blend wine is stylish and fruity while also being densely structured. It is complex with red fruits and dry wood flavors layered with perfumed tannins and richness that comes from fermentation in stone lagars. It really needs to age, wait to drink until 2020.
