Dense, almost opaque, garnet red colour. This wine is complex, hedonistic, and reminiscent of its Spanish influence. On the nose, warm stones, black orchard fruit, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, chocolate and cedar are apparent. The palate is rich, dense and generous without being sweet or overt, with the flavours reflecting the nose. The well integrated tannins offer a fine gravelly texture.
94 Points ~ Deep crimson. Intensely complex wine with fresh dark cherry, marzipan, grilled nut, dark chocolate, spice aromas and flavours, fine bitter sweet tannins, very good mid palate density and fresh long mineral acidity. Velvety smooth finish with mocha, roasted chestnut notes.
