Some of the wines above we bought years ago with the intention of aging. Bottles such as this, however, were released from the winery several years after the vintage; the winemakers feel it needed time to age for optimal drinking. Organic Syrah & Grenache from the Languedoc spend 6 months in concrete before their long slumber begins. While still a bold, tannic red, it now displays lovely violet and spice notes. Proof that not all wine fades with age!
