The Rare Barrel Blurred with Pinot Noir Grapes
Floral, dry Bordeaux nose mingles with light oak, licorice, and a waft of cellar-funk—restrained, overall. Flavor is decidedly vinous, with light jammy sweetness drying into an oaky finish. Alcoholic warmth doesn’t fit well, hindering drinkability. Grape-forward.
