Staff Pick Notes

This wine has a deep intense red color.I noticed it as soon as I poured a glass. The grapes used to make this wine were selected by the winemakers. 2018 was a good vintage, with moderate temperature and not too much rain. This factor allowed slow ripening of the berries. Everything seems balanced in this wine; body, acidity and tannin! This wine gives a very pleasant silky mouthfeel. Black fruit flavors and smooth oak secondary flavors are very well integrated. The grapes are sourced from 60 years old vines and a small portion of Carménère is added to give elegance to an already solid and robust wine. I would pair it with pork of lamb dishes. If you want to warm up on a cold winter night, this wine will do the job!
