If you cherish Kenzo Estate's premium wine, you will be delighted with our six-bottle set of 2005 ai delivered in our branded wooden box. Included with the wine set are two beautifully crafted Riedel Vinum Bordeaux wine glasses with the Kenzo Estate logo on each one. The 2005 harvest was our first ever at the estate. This release will mark the first and, potentially, only time this vintage will be offered online. There are only 7 sets of the murasaki and 3 sets of the ai. Please note that due to the holiday this week, shipments for this particular set will not begin until July 9th, but you are welcome to order as of today.
The 2005 ai blend is the quintessential Napa Cabernet, characterized by dark fruit aromatics of blackberry and cherry with subtle jammy notes. The supple tannins and bright acidity allow this wine to linger with a long finish. ai represents the mystical color of indigo and the pursuit of harmony. The cepage is 86.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.7% Merlot, 3.0% Petit Verdot and 1.9% Cabernet Franc. It has been aged 20 months in French oak (50%) and in new French oak (50%).
