    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cherry color with violet tones. There are fruity aroma and the palate highlights the red and black fruit notes, like strawberries and blueberries notes. There is some mineral and earth notes here as well. This wine is elegant, powerful, and enveloping.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Victorino went through malolactic in new French oak followed by 18 months of aging in new barrels. Dense purple in color, it displays an already complex bouquet of Asian spices, sandalwood, leather, balsamic, and brooding black fruits. Dense and backward on the palate but well-balanced, it mandates a minimum of 5-7 years of cellaring. It will provide prime drinking from 2017 to 2028.

    Smoky and big on the bouquet, with black fruit galore, shoe polish, peppercorn and chocolate aromas. Intense and tannic but layered and deep, with a granite body and dark, ripe flavors of blackberry, fig, spice and chocolate. Huge, toasted and modern in every way. Cellar Selection!

    Dark purple. Intensely floral bouquet of candied red fruits, violet and star anise, with a suave note of vanilla building with air. Fresh and sharply focused, offering zesty dark berry and cherry flavors and a hint of mocha. Finishes with youthful grip and refreshing bitterness, leaving notes of baking spices and floral pastilles behind.

    International Wine Cellar

    Svelte and lively, this polished red delivers toast, cola and espresso notes that frame a ripe yet lively core of black cherry, licorice and mineral flavors. A modern style, balanced and alluring. Drink now through 2016. 350 cases imported.
