Fine core of raspberry and blackberry, with ample
structure as well. Good mineral, toast, briar and meat hints underneath. Shows more muscle but stays nicely balanced through the finish. Drink now through 2007.
The grapes are sourced from the Tupungato region of Mendoza, high in the Andes Mountains, set at an elevation between 3,000 and 5,000 feet above sea level. With unique microclimate conditions, Tupungato offers the opportunity to produce fruit with exceptional concentration and structure. Due to its high altitude location, weather conditions in the region are characterized by a wide thermal amplitude between daytime highs and nighttime lows. The bright sunny days allow for maximum radiation and photosynthesis, resulting in the development of a complex matrix of flavors and aromas. the cool, clear nights transate into a slow, gradual maturation process, permitting and extended hang time and esuring proper acid balance
Full bodied and rich with juicy blackberry and cassis fruit. Hints of cocoa and spice linger over the firm yet silky tannins. Finishes ripe and long.
