    Winemaker's Notes:

    #42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014 and the 2005 vintage of this wine was #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2008

    Dark and deep inky purple red color. Still young, but opening on the nose towards ripe and expressive red and black fruit, such as plums, red cherries, dry figs and blueberries. Also, spices such as vanilla, clover and white pepper. With a concentrated structure, this wine has a round and packed attack followed by velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a ripe and rich long lasting finish.

    Open and leave to breathe for a couple of hours or carefully decant for minimum 1 hour and enjoy at room temperature; 16 to 18ºC (60 to 65°F). This wine is an ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate deserts.

    Blend: 71% Carmenere, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    The aromas in this wine are phenomenal with slate, blackberry, blue granite and lead pencil. Violet too. Full body, with seamless tannins and dense and reserved structure. It needs about three or four years to soften. 100% new wood and aged 26 months. From 71% carmenere, 15% cabernet sauvignon, and 11% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes.

    James Suckling

    Big and rich, this red is filled with powerful flavors of blackberry, dark currant, black olive and dark chocolate that are built on an ironclad frame. Notes of cocoa powder and cream chime in as well, and the muscular finish lingers with hints of savory herb. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2022.
