Yes, it's expensive, but if you are looking for a special-occasion red wine that you can drink with pleasure now, this is a fine choice. It's a Bordeaux-style blend of exceptional elegance and style. It's complex and rounded, with flavors of black cherry, blackberry, vanilla and chocolate. It's structured to age well but there's really no need to wait.
