Basel Cellars the Alchemist 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a rare, exclusive wine, of which only 150 cases are produced each year. Winemaker Trey Bush is the author of this Meritage masterpiece which has subtle oak influences and ripe fruit flavors reminiscent of black cherries and plums that combine to create an enchanting, delicious red. Drink with quality beef, elk and game with roasted vegetables, or tortas with chipotle mayonnaise.
