There's a sappy, old-vine character to this red, featuring intense cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors. Accents of wild herbs, iron and tobacco add depth as this plays out on the lingering finish, showing excellent balance and length. Best from 2024 through 2038.
Because of recent monumental vintages, it might be sacrilege to say but the 2018 is our favorite Asili in years but we'll say it anyway. A special release, celebrating the Grasso family's 30th harvest from Asili, the 2018 is a velvety masterpiece.
