Winemaker's Notes

This vintage of Cristina displays abundant red cherry-berry fruit, juicy plum and cola, plus a delicate floral note of violets. The palate is broad and full, with perfect balance between the elegant oak and the engaging fruit. The flavors seem to never end and the finish is seamless. The rich, plush tannins provide a solid structure that will help develop this long-aging wine for many years to come.
