A range of bold rich reds, aged in charred No.3 oak barrels. Charred barrels impart distinct characteristics and a deep complexity to the wine. The degree of barrel charring increases on a scale from No.1 to No.4 – the highly charred No.3 barrel enhances the roasted coffee and chocolate characters, revealing a subtle toasty flavor and smooth finish.
