Extra aging makes for better wine, says this California label
·2 min read

It’s all about aging: “Extra Añejo” is Spanish for “extra aged.” Malek Amrani, the winemaker who founded the Vice (as the brand is simply called), says there’s always concern that the extra time in the barrel can result in a wine that’s too “oaky” because of all that contact between the liquid and the wood. There’s also a practical factor: Winemakers want to move product — and storing wine for years on end doesn’t exactly speak to that idea.
