Winemaker Notes: Boasting a deep and concentrated ruby appearance, the bouquet shows classic Viking vineyard aromas with the high-toned perfume leading with violets, blackberries, and exotic baking spices. Secondary notes of graphite, cedar, and balsam wood are all framed and lifted by oak and vanilla notes introduced through a combination of high-quality French barrels. This vintage delivers a decadent, full-bodied wine that is as vibrant and lively as it is rich and intense. Limestone-derived chalky tannins cry out for sumptuous food and will keep the wine fresh for ages. Enjoy now for grip, structure, and intensity, or hold for new complexities to evolve.
