2014 Rindo 750ml The Flagship Wine of Kenzo Estate
The 2014 Rindo is analogous to the cinematic struggle between beauty and beast. The deep and dark aromatics are tempered by the sensual grace of its palate. Plum, blackberry, and black pepper, as well as a stern minerality define the bouquet, while a delicate blanket of savory tannins lie beneath. This labyrinth of a red Bordeaux blend is drinkable now, but one can expect this wine to be in perfect harmonious balance within 5 years.
