Made in a solera system from wine going back nearly 100 years and from vines even older, this wine is, just as you'd expect from the name, a rare beauty. Coffee-colored and green-tinged, the nose is a heady mix of drying black cherries, orange rind, old books, molasses, tea leaves and crunchy autumnal leaves. Sure, it's syrupy and unctuous in texture but it's not the least bit heavy or cloying. Instead, it rolls over your tongue, unleashing a multitude of complex flavors that seem to last a lifetime, just like this wine will.
