The story of Cask 23 began during the harvest of 1974. Back then, the winery enlisted the help of celebrated winemaker André Tchelistcheff. As he tasted through various lots of new wines from that year, one lot from S.L.V. was so beautiful and deliciously distinct the winery decided it should be bottled separately. It was named Cask 23 for the large wooden cask in which it was aged. Today, the wine is a blend of the most distinctive fruit from the S.L.V and FAY vineyards, resulting in a wine of extraordinary depth and richness balanced by restraint. Over the years, Cask 23 has become one of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. The wine opens with deep red and black cherry aromas along with notes of juicy strawberry, cocoa and spice. Elegant texture with very fine tannins and great acidity. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with rich dark berry fruit with hints of cedar and white truffle that lead to a long fruit and spice-driven finish.
Opens with aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, mocha and black licorice. The wine is rich and opulent on the palate with crushed mixed berry and spice flavors that are supported by ample, yet plush, tannins.
The wine has great presence and persistence with a finish filled with black currant and violet spice.
