This fragrant, stunning wine opens with layers of aromas that include blue flower, rose, baking spices, sandalwood and perfumed berry that follow through to crushed red cherry, cinnamon, white pepper and thyme flavors. Made from vines that are more than 60 years old, it's delicious and impeccably balanced with freshness and big, velvety tannins. Hold for complexity. Drink 2016–2033. Polaner Selections, Louis/Dressner Selections.
