6 bottles of 2008 (0,75Ltr.) in org wooden case.

Some tasting notes:

92 points Wine Spectator.
Still tight, with the core of cherry and red currant fruit held in check by a mix of lightly firm sandalwood, spice, liquorice root and warm stone flavors. Mulled fig and cocoa notes check in on the grippy finish. A rare backward style 2008 that will need some cellaring to round into form.

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright ruby. Lively, musky aromas of red berries, cherry, anise, earth and spices, augmented by hints of lavender and resin. Energetic, focused redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show good definition and pick up minerality with air. Taut on the back end, finishing with solid grip and very good, tangy persistence. I like this wine's vivacity and balance.

Shipping would take place with the wooden case.
