    Winemaker's Notes:

    The average age of the vines is 40 years, with some vines dating back to the early 1900s. All the grapes are hand harvested during multiple passes through the vines. Aging takes place in neutral wood and the wines are neither filtered nor fined.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Glass-staining ruby. Intense dark fruit and floral aromas are given depth by hints of licorice and bitter herbs. Brighter on the palate, offering potent red and dark berry flavors and a touch of cherry skin. Smooths out with air, picking up a smoky note and finishing with firm but harmonious tannins and excellent persistence. Let this promising wine age for at least five more years. I also had the chance to re-taste the excellent 2009 here: it was showing an energetic, red fruit-dominated personality, with a sexy floral nuance and supple tannins. The 2007, which I tasted alongside, showed uncommon elegance for the vintage, with intense raspberry and cherry character and a long, sweet finish.
