80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
80% of this wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels, and 20% in second-use French oak.
The 2018 season was exceptional, with fine conditions in both summer and spring, and average temperatures slightly lower than normal. This pushed back harvest more than expected, allowing for slower, more complex ripening processes, producing better acidity, color and concentration than in normal years. The work in the vineyard with controlling the kilos allowed us to achieve perfect phenolic ripeness, which translated into wines with vivid color and excellent flavors. The grapes arrived at the cellar in a healthy state, allowing for very good fermentation and a winemaking process that was unhurried, each lot receiving personalized care in order for it to express its maximum potential.
Deep carmine red color. Complex nose, with ample notes of ripe red and black fruits, syrup of cherries, figs and blackberries. Its permanence in French oak barrels is reflected in its toasted notes, sweet spices, tobacco and a certain note of humid earth and lactic character, toffee, delicacy of milk. On the palate it is balanced, with extremely silky tannins, ample volume on the palate, very well harmonized with acidity, and with flavors that reaffirm what is perceived in its aromatic part, to leave a long, fruity and vibrant finish on the palate.
Highly recommended with roast turkey, beef fillet, sherried kidneys, duck confit.
