Description

"Sourced from comparably younger vines (viñas jovenes in Spanish), this is still a characterful wine (no surprise, as the vines actually are approaching 18 years old and are not far from their prime production period). A beautiful, translucent ruby color, there are deep, dark cherry aromas leading to a very concentrated, pure, intense, cherry fruited palate. Give this wine some air, and do not be afraid to finish it up on the second or even third day; it will only taste better!" -K & L Wines

Winemaking Notes

All the grapes are hand-picked in small cases to let the fruit
arrive at the winery in the best conditions. Once there, the grapes are placed
in a sorting table where any imperfect grain is rejected. Alcoholic
fermentation went through at 30º C., with frequent “remontages” and
“bazuqueos” for more than two weeks. Malolactic fermentation started
spontaneously and finished perfectly well. Gentle clarification before going
into the barrels. The wine was matured for 30 months in 17 new barrels of Allier
oak and 9 of American oak. It has rest for more than 5 years in bottle before
release.
