Food: No accompaniment required. If you want it, try the same dishes as in the duet lex, but with more intense flavors. The colossus will cope with them. Roe deer and mouflon are more aromatic than deer.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot
Maturation: 48 months in barrique barrels (100% new wood).
Deep ruby colour with no garnet tinges. It combines the colour shade of two years younger Duet, and depth of Duet Lex. It gives a very young impression for its age. Careless taster might well be surprised by its nose. Kolos used to be big, bold and very ripe, but from vintage 2015, “less is more” slogan would describe it more accurately. It is still very intense on the nose, though, unsurprisingly, a bit less compared to Duet Lex. Opulence, aromatic diversity and complexity are the keys here. Though fully ripe, freshness is still very much present as well as open fruitiness. Dry, with ripe, grippy, noble tannins and firm structure, which will allow for a slow and dependable maturation.
The taste on the palate is layered, complex and acts like a well-played orchestra. Its aroma intensity, which is not a result of over ripeness or too much of new oak, full body which is perfectly in line with ripe and refreshing acidities, supple tannins - all these are providing elegance and drinkability. So much important atributes for a classic wine lover who to enjoy his wine with food and is immune to critics scores.
From vintage 2015 on Kolos is much more elegant and subdued wine very much like refined, completed edition of already sophisticated Duet Lex. Kolos is now colossal by many parameters. Muscles, full body and over ripeness are not among them. Kolos is a wine produced to be lay-down in a cellar. The patience will be well-rewarded. Nevertheless, Kolos is (almost) ready when released.
