2013 Ai 750ml *97 Points*
ai represents the color indigo in the Japanese language and has been used in the ancient art of textile dyeing for thousands of years throughout Japan. Derived from plant material, indigo is an elusive commodity, just as the wine that bears its name, the 2013 ai. Sweet notes of cinnamon, dried apricot and orange zest describe this sizzling aromatic puzzle. While savory spices like white pepper, sage and thyme lead you to a dark and austere palate of soft tannins. Like the Indigo artist who carefully applies his craft, the 2013 ai is constructed with the gentlest touch from our talented winemaking team. Enjoy now and for many years to come.
Cépage: Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Malbec 7%, Cabernet Franc 1.5%, Merlot 1.5%
