This ultra reserve, made in half bottles only, is labeled the winery's best offering. It lives up to the claim, with stunningly rich and broad flavors of black fruits, dusty cedar, tobacco, tea and coffee. The rich and complex barrel flavors are beautifully integrated, seamless and proportioned, and power through a breathtaking finish that lasts for minutes. Drink now and over the next five years.
