Tasting Note: This wine tastes like raisin-infused rose petals swimming in a lake of black fruit.

I’ve recreated a similar taste at home and for a lot cheaper by tossing a handful of raisins into a glass of cabernet franc and letting it soak for 30 minutes, but I digress.

The medium-tannin, black fruit wine is enjoyable (but if you don’t have $215/bottle to spend, try my raisin hack in a pinch).

Only 1,000 bottles produced.

Bottle Note: Each year we set aside a few bottles of Barolo Serre in order to continue their ideal aging in underground cellars in which they were produced. The first pieces of Serre 2006 “10 years” have left the winery in February 2016.

Rating: 91 points (James Suckling gives it 91 points too)
Price: $215
Alcohol: 14%
