Per D'Arenburg.....
While enjoyable in youth, this wine will reach its full potential with bottle age up
to at least 20 years. The considerable structure and depth will ensure that the
fruit characters will develop over time revealing more complexity and providing
immense interest. This wine is best stored in an environment free of direct
sunlight and with consistent temperatures between 10°C and 15°C.
