Edi Simcic, Duet, Slovenia, 2016
Bold as she is beautiful, this ruby redhead is trouble with the lingering smell of black currant, tobacco, licorice, and intense spice. Her firm tannins will take hold with elegance. Leaving a taste of her red cherry and pepper flavored lipstick.

28 months in barriques barrels (100% new wood)
Merlot (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), Cabernet Franc (10%); from selected vineyards that are 15 to 35 years old. Careful selection, 14 days of maceration, and 36 to 42 months of maturing in 100% new oak barrels yields an open, clean wine, reminiscent of Bordeaux wines, which will not and can not be hidden. The ageing potential is 15 years.
