Notes about product

Grapes sourced from Leyda Valley. The vineyards receive all the influence of the Pacific Ocean, which is expressed in tremendously elegant, fruity, and spicy reds.

Winemaking notes

The grapes were crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 7 days. Upon completion of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was barrel aged for 8–10 months in French and American oak.

Tasting notes

Intense aromas of red fruits such as raspberries and black currant with floral notes accompanied by smoked meat and tobacco. Generous, ripe, and well structured with a pleasingly long finish.

Blackberry, black walnut, stone and black tea aromas. Full body, very ripe and rich with loads of fruit. Long and flavorful. A beauty. Dark and delicious.
