ExcelsuS is stylish and well-structured with a remarkable concentration of fruit and tannin. A densely colored, ruby-hued red with garnet tones, this austere wine offers an opulent bouquet that hints of plum, black currant and bell pepper.
Wine Spectator 92 points - Showing sweet dried cherry and plum flavors, this is ripe and fluid, accented by leather, tea and spice. Firm, with refined tannins on the finish. This would pair nicely with a boar ragu. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now. 175 cases imported.-BS
