Winemaker Notes

El Puntido is oaky on the nose with notes of red currant and dark raspberry. It has a creamy body of delicious cherry, plum and cassis fruit above soft vanilla. A very pretty wine, with long length and amazing complexity and balance.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 El Puntido is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of wood smoke, espresso, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, round and smooth-textured, this opulent effort is loaded with luscious fruit and has enough structure to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink this lengthy effort from 2016 to 2026.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Another stellar El Puntido, this time with excellent concentration and full-load aromas of black fruit, leather, fine dried cheese and cola. The palate is tight, properly stretched and racy, with bursting black raspberry and cassis flavors. Coconut and resin on the finish is the first and only glaring announcement of oak. Drink now through 2014.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Deep, vivid ruby. Powerful scents of blackcurrant, cherry preserves, woodsmoke and sassafras, with slow-building rose and violet qualities. Broad, fleshy dark berry liqueur and candied violet flavors are framed by velvety tannins, picking up cracked pepper and spice notes with air. A serious, chewy, delineated wine that develops seductive sweetness and lively Asian spice character on the long, sappy finish.
