Marquis Tasting Note:
Their flagship wine and best-seller. This is also their largest production of 60-70K bottles annually. There is a noticeable increase in depth from Sartiu in structure with red cherry chocolate, sweet spice, graphite/minerality, and subtle dried herbs and menthol qualities. The purity, ripeness of fruit and balance is wonderful. Drink now and until at least 2020.
