2015 murasaki 1.5L
murasaki, meaning purple in Japanese, also appropriately signifies the color of royalty. This wine appropriately follows suit with its opulent purple hue and expressive, delicate essence. murasaki is Kenzo Estate’s homage to the Merlot-influenced blends from Bordeaux’s famed Right Bank producers, where the wines are smooth, supple and elegant. Our winemaking team carefully selects the finest lots of Merlot to serve as the foundation to this limited production offering. Always bottled in very small quantities, the 2015 murasaki is especially precious. This epic 2015 vintage has given us a wine brimming with seductive aromatics ranging from Bing cherry to brioche and sweet cigar box. Dark fruit supported by a mineral backbone are tempered by soft tannins on the palate. Enjoy this treasured, majestic offering both now and as it flourishes in the bottle for years to come.
