ALPHA OMEGA Proprietary Red Blend, Magnum
Complimentary shipping* Magnum bottle.
WHY WE LOVE IT:
- 98 Points, Wine Enthusiast
- The great 2013 Vintage
- Big aging potential here
Let's let Wine Enthusiast run with this:
A seamless expression of black pepper, garrigue, clove and pencil. Old world in style and in full command of its power, it offers generously layered, intensely robust tannin and concentration that flirts with richness. Half barrel-fermented and half stainless-steel, it shows promise for cellaring; enjoy best 2023–2038.
