Edi Simcic, Duet Lex
(doo-ET leks)

 

Tasting Notes: From Edi Simcic, comes a Bordeaux-style blend of stunning power, yet is amazingly refined. Extremely low-yields, mature vines, and plenty of time in new French oak make Simcic’s Riserva richly layered with plum, dark tea, and woodsmoke. A monumental achievement that will age for 20 years or more.
