AppearanceDeep, dark red.
NosePredominating notes of blackcurrant, plum, and red cherries accompanied by a subtle touch of dark chocolate, vanilla, and a pleasing touch of smoke that comes from the oak aging.
PalateAn elegant wine with tremendous body and fine ripe tannins stands out for its concentrated flavors that lead to a long and pleasing finish.
“It's only 13.5% alcohol and has good freshness, with the oak neatly folded into the fruit, perhaps because the élevage was eight months in barrique and a further ten months in bottle. They picked the grapes a little earlier, and the wine has a more modern profile (Terrunyo is more classical); there is more fruit, and there's good freshness in the layered palate. The tannins are very fine, classical Cabernet.”
