Tasting Note

This wine comes from one of the oldest plots, planted 97 years ago, and is only made in years of exceptional quality. Deep, impenetrable colour with very intense, complex and elegant aromatics. Aromas of tarry spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, dark chocolate and vanillin) and wild berry fruits. Everything is in a perfect balance. The rich, full bodied palate has intense rich berry and spice flavours elegantly integrated with fine grained dusty tannins. Fantastic structure and great length suggest serious aging potential. A very deep and well balanced wine.

Winemaking

Grapes are hand picked and transported to the winery in small plastic crates, after which they are subjected to a very stringent selection for quality. Gentle crushing is carried out by foot in traditional stone 'lagares', and this is continued by robot 'feet' in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks during fermentation. The wine is then aged for 18 months in new 225 litre French and American oak barrels (80% and 20% respectively).

Press

  • Very dark with black core. Not very expressive yet but there is an adumbration of intense perfume with a very slight char. Wow. This is a perfectly suited gentleman on the surface. Maximum refinement. Yet underneath that a wild, natural beauty. Stunning. Drink 202-2035. 18+/20
