Analysis: 13,5% vol.

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked during the third week of May and carefully transported to the winery. The grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and deposited into stainless steel tanks, where they underwent a 3-day pre-fermentation cold soak. The must was inoculated with selected yeasts and allowed to ferment at 28 – 30 degrees C (82 – 86 degrees F) with regular pumpovers that ranged from 1.5 times the volume in the beginning and to half volume at the end. Upon completion of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remained on its skins for another week to develop additional structure and character. The wine was then separated from the skins; the skins were pressed and the press wine was reserved separately. The finished wine was cold stabilized, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note: The dark purplish-ruby-red color precedes a serious and intense nose that recalls plum liqueur, blueberries, and ripe red bell peppers heightened by a mineral note of pencil lead. A touch of leather follows, combined with a toast and light spice. It is direct and voluminous on the palate, where velvety tannins and completely integrated acidity result in a well-rounded structure before ending on silky smooth fruit with spicy accents.

Best Enjoyed: Within 4 years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
