Tasting Notes

Opaque ruby. Mineral- and spice-tinged aromas of ripe cherry, dark berries, smoked meat and candied violet show impressive clarity and spicy lift. Chewy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy blackberry, cherry-cola, olive paste and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily through the back half. Becomes sweeter on the impressively long finish, which features well-integrated tannins and reverberating mineral and exotic spice notes. "Journaries" is the name of this bottling in the U.S., but for the rest of the world, it is called "Maestria". Most of the fruit here comes from La Landonne. Drink 2026 - 2037.
