Tasting Notes:
Red and black cherries elegantly integrated with dried prunes and a mixed fruit compote with leather and tobacco leaf wafting through. Soft silky tannins and a spicy vanilla crisp finish. Toasty flavors with a refreshing acidity.

Aging:  Barrel: 24 months, 70% French 30% American oak barrels. Bottle: At least 18 months ageing in bottle.

Winemaking: Unequaled quality grapes from our old vines which are hand harvested and selected then fermented at a max temperature of 30ºC in concrete tanks and 300 litre barrels. Manual punching down throughout fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in French and American oak barrels with a minimum ageing of 24 months. Settling and fining in concrete tanks then bottled.

Food Pairing: Goes well with chorizo, ham and spicy dishes. Also fabulous with pasta and risottos.
