Winemaker's Notes

Dark, very intense red rubin with violet shades; light garnet-red tonalities that can just be noticed on the glass border. Wide, elegant, delicate, lingering, earthy with mineral hints integrated with the fruity flavor and a sweet spiciness. The first impact is sweet with sensations on mouth entry full of structure. Close-knit tannic weight but sweet and silky. Very well balanced tannins with wine sweetness. Full-flavored and full-bodied, rich in end-palate fruity and spicy sensations.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows blackberries and dried flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of ripe berry and cream character. Rich and flavorful. Long and beautiful. It's layered and velvety. Seductive. Drink now. 5,610 cases made."
