Winemaker's Notes

The wine exhibits deep garnet color with flashes of violet and a bouquet of dark red cherries and leather. On the palate the wine achieves its full potential, offering notes of black berries, plums and licorice with an elegant but persistent finish

Critical Acclaim

"The opaque purple-colored 2010 Tarima Hill exhibits notes of chocolate fudge, pen ink, graphite, blueberries and blackberries. This full-bodied, 100% Monastrell should drink well for a decade or more. These amazing efforts taste more like they should cost $30 to $50 as opposed to the mid-teens."
93 Points

"Opaque ruby. Powerful cherry and cassis aromas are brightened by suave mineral, star anise and floral elements. Intense dark berry flavors are pleasantly bitter and surprisingly lithe, with spice and violet pastille notes adding interest. Gains sweetness and depth on the subtly tannic, very long finish, which leaves smoky mineral and floral notes behind."
91 Points

"A plush texture carries the flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, hoisin sauce and licorice. The tannins are well-integrated, gaining liveliness from balsamic acidity. A big wine that manages to stay fresh"

This tasted like a far more expensive bottle. It started off almost sweet, but mellowed out nicely with air. We had it with steak and they went very well together.
