"(aged for two years in French oak barrels that are made at the bodega, as is the case with all of the casks here) Opaque ruby. Pungent, oak-tinged cherry and red currant scents are complemented by mineral and peppery spice notes and a hint of game. Sappy and incisive on the palate, offering juicy red berry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors that show an appealing blend of richness and vivacity. Finishes taut, smoky and long, leaving suggestions of candied flowers and smoked meat behind. There's an interesting interplay of Old and New World character here."-- Josh Raynolds

"On the nose, it displays ripe, dark fruit, grape syrup, bitter chocolate and as it opens up, hints of spices such as pepper, vanilla and a little mountain scrub begin coming through. On the palate, it is balanced, with a soft touch of acidity to give it good potential for cellaring. The attack is broad and long, with an evolution in the mouth which spreads silky and mineral sensations before concluding with sweet tannins which still have a bit of “grip” and will benefit from some “time out” for their full integration. In the retro-olfaction the notes of oak and mountain scrub are more clearly defined, repeating the impres- sions noted in direct olfaction but with a greater pre- ponderance. It is a vintage with “character”."~Winery notes
