Wine Tasting Notes
The Basilisk is a massive, yet ethereal wine with aromas of vibrant red raspberry, black tea, lavender, bergamot oil, vetiver, pencil lead. The super-silky entry opens to broad, velvety, palate-coating tannins and flavors of raspeberry jam, star anise, and earl grey tea. A beauty. This wine will cellar effortlessly for 15 years or longer.
