Twenty Year Ruby

Combining 17 vintages over 20 years, this special release was finished, blended, and bottled in mid-2017. Embracing two decades of history, the layers of flavor are evident on the palate and will continue to evolve with time in glass.

Description

Nose The wine opens with lively aromas of raspberry and kirsch complemented by cinnamon, allspice, and clove. These, in turn, give way to incredibly bright notes of dried flowers and potpourri with just a hint of butterscotch lurking in the background.

Palate With 20 years of history, the layers of flavor on the palate are incredible and will only continue to evolve with time in the glass. Bittersweet chocolate, hazelnut, and ripe fig merge into rich caramel and espresso ahead of dried cranberry and plum.

Finish The finish is opulent and intense as candied orange peel and licorice slowly transition to warm toast, vanilla, and just a touch of mint.
