Dark fruit with iodine, muscle shell and hints of coal on the palate. Full-bodied, very tight and structured with steely tannins that give incredible length and poise. The greatest Factor I have ever tasted. Driven and brilliant.
A perfume of sweet dark plum and both blue and black berries leads to a palate of plush, creamy plum pudding. Inky, dense, and seamless, this wine is a nosedive into old leather, black olives, and coffee-bean tannins. Many of the vines that bore the fruit are a century old, meaning they were unaffected by the phylloxera outbreak of the late 19th century. Aged 24 months in a combination of new, second-fill, and seasoned oak barriques, it’s a beauty for the ages.
