Tasting notes

Deep, brilliant red. On the nose, aromas of cassis, black cherries, blackberries, and floral notes elegantly complement sweet and pungent spices like nutmeg, black pepper and tobacco. Round tannins provide structure and tension on the palate, and integrate with complex flavors of fruit and subtle oak.

Production

Vintage Notes

Rainfall - due to the El Niño phenomenon - heavily affected the growing season. The overall average temperature was lower than previous years, provoking an unprecedented thirty-day delay in the vines’ phenolic ripening. Average precipitation in both January and February was above the historical average. Harvest was delayed three weeks, but at the time of picking the grapes presented good concentrarion as well as a marked natural acidity. Yields: 1.5-4.5 tons per acre.
