Winemaker's Notes

El Puntido is oaky on the nose with notes of red currant and dark raspberry. It has a creamy body of delicious cherry, plum and cassis fruit above soft vanilla. A very pretty wine, with long length and amazing complexity and balance.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 El Puntido is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of wood smoke, espresso, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, round and smooth-textured, this opulent effort is loaded with luscious fruit and has enough structure to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink this lengthy effort from 2016 to 2026. "
94 Points

"Deep, vivid ruby. Powerful scents of blackcurrant, cherry preserves, woodsmoke and sassafras, with slow-building rose and violet qualities. Broad, fleshy dark berry liqueur and candied violet flavors are framed by velvety tannins, picking up cracked pepper and spice notes with air. A serious, chewy, delineated wine that develops seductive sweetness and lively Asian spice character on the long, sappy finish."
