Winemaker's Notes:

2008 is one of Marimar Estate's greatest vintages and this barrel selection of Cristina packs a myriad aromas of rasberry, rose petal, cinnamon, clove and a trave of orange peel. The palate is full-flavored, intense and mouthwatering, with hints of moka and spice from the elegant, toasty oak. The supple tannins make it a delightful wine to drink right now, but it will age well for at least another 20 years.
