Wine Expert Note:

Upon pouring, the Aleksander Reserve greets the senses with a rich, deep hue that promises a serious wine experience. The nose is immediately captivating, with a mélange of dark fruit—blackberry, cassis—complemented by an elegant tapestry of cedar, tobacco, and spice from the integrated oak. On the palate, the wine reveals a superb structure, with layers of dark fruit matched by a symphony of secondary notes including leather, dark chocolate, and a hint of graphite minerality. The tannins are firm yet silky, leading to a long, satisfying finish that leaves a luxurious echo of the nuanced bouquet. This Reserve is not just a wine but an exploration of depth and finesse, promising further revelations with each sip.
