Winemaker's Notes

Our 2000 Don Maximiano Founder's Reserva displays spicy blackberry aromas and deep earthy characters, while the oak aging contributes integrated notes of toasted almonds, vanilla and coffee. On the palate, the ripe berry fruit is reminiscent of blackberry pie, together with black cherry, coffee and vanilla. Rich cigar, leather and an intriguing note of ripe black olives add complexity.

It should continue to improve in the bottle for up to 15 years.
