Winemaker's Notes

Ruby-red color with a golden rim. Bright and deep. Complex aromas. The fruit side reveals all the sensations of the varieties which are used in its blend: cherries, black plum, ripe, juicy blackberries. The time spent in the cask brings nuances of clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut, further enriched by the aromas which develop during bottle ageing. Smooth and balanced on the palate with a full, elegant feel and a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This maturing red shows dried berry, floral and anise notes, with tobacco, cedar and earth undertones. The tannins are softening, while the acidity remains fresh. Harmonious, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2015."

Definitely a keeper, especially for the price. Start with the color, nice and dark. On the palate, nice body, smooth finish. What more could you ask for?
