Year of Dragon Limited Edition - Beichun 2018

Luminous deep ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of black and red cherries, quinine, cocoa and licorice, with a violet undertone. Enters smooth and suave, then elegant and austere in the middle but with building creaminess to the sweet and silky flavours of dark cherry, smoky plum, sandalwood and sweet spices. The aftertaste is long, mouth-coating and round. This is excellent, somewhat reminiscent of an Amarone-styled wine that is very well balanced. Stainless-steel fermented, and aged in old oak (third fill) 500-liter and 225-liter barrels for twelve months, then another eighteen months in bottle prior to going on sale. Drinking window: 2026-2034.
