This is the opportunity to get a mini-Erasmus at a much lower price. 16,000 bottles were produced, the largest production of Laurel ever...93" WA 02/14 "Brilliant ruby-red. Smoky, spice-accented scents of blueberry, boysenberry and smoky Indian spices. Lush and creamy in texture, offering deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors brightened by zesty minerality.
