And the flagship, I would say….Once again, the highest scoring wine of the vintage for Ian D’Agata, whose note sounds plain mouthwatering to me, red fruits/cherry/saline/sweet spices/herbs….Like I always say, the proof is in the pudding, and Jan’s wines just have the ineffable special delicious going on and then some…..BIG FORMAT LOVERS: They offered me a few 3L, which they only made 20 of in total!!!!
“Luminous deep red. Aromas of herbs (thyme, rosemary, bay leaf), sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) and ripe red cherry. Very saline, juicy acidity lifts and extends the blue and red berry flavors on the long delicately herbal and spicy finish. Very ready to drink, but will age well. This will go on sale at the end of this year.” 97 Ian D’Agata
