Notes about product
The harvest began a little later than normal due to a cold and rainy spring followed by a temperate summer. High temperatures in March and April allowed the fruit to finish ripening and also helped compensate for the late start on the harvest, which ended in early May. The quality was very good, and despite yields that were higher than expected.
The grapes were crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at 82ºF (28ºC). This was followed by a 3-day post-fermentation maceration. Part of the wine was aged in oak barrels for 4–6 months to obtain greater complexity in the final blend.
Intense yet delicate with aromas of red and black fruits such as plums, blackberries, and raspberries with a light touch of toast. Well rounded with very good balance and persistence. Pair with red meat, well-seasoned dishes, stews, and cheeses.
