Winemaker's Notes

Eye: Deep dark color with mauve tints.

Nose: Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose.

Palate: A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate.

Overall: A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak aging.
