Wine Profile

Tasting Notes A complex series of aromas unfold in the glass, from warm berries and concentrated cassis, to chocolate fudge, violets, and barrel spices. The deep, dark fruit and chocolate flavors are surrounded by a velvety texture and fine tannins that linger on the palate.
Ratings Earthy, leathery flavors dominate the profile, with tobacco leaf and herbal notes in lieu of fruitier notes. Drink now through 2016. 2,179 cases made. –JL
Vineyard Notes The story of CASK 23 began during the harvest of 1974. Back then, the winery enlisted the help of celebrated winemaker André Tchelistcheff. As he tasted through various lots of new wines from that year, one lot from S.L.V. was so beautiful and deliciously distinct, the winery decided it should be bottled separately. It was named CASK 23 for the large wooden cask in which it was aged. Today, the wine is a blend of the most distinctive fruit from the S.L.V and FAY vineyards, resulting in a wine of extraordinary depth, richness, and elegance. Over the years, CASK 23 has become one of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide
