Deep red with violet hues. The nose reveals black fruit, such as blackberries, intermingled with gentle spices, such as black pepper, damp earth, notes of native forest and a hint of graphite. This wine has a firm structure and silky tannins. Its black fruit and spicy flavours, together with medium to high acidity lend it balance in the mouth and persistence in the finish.

Tasting notes

2014

Winemaking: The grapes first underwent a low-temperature pre-fermentative maceration to bring

out the maximum colour and aromas. Then the must was fermented in small stainless steel tanks

and open tanks. The management of the tannins in this wine is very important.

Ageing: The wine was aged for 24 months in ultra-fine grain French oak barrels, 40% of them new

and the rest second and third use.

Then it was bottle-aged for at least 24 months.

Technical data:

Alcohol by volume: 14.5 %GL

pH: 3.48

Acidity: 5.98 g/L (Tartaric Acid).

Residual sugar: 2.00 g/L

Ageing potential: This wine can be enjoyed now, but it has the potential to be aged for at least 8

to 10 years.

Colour: Deep red with violet hues.

Aromas: The nose reveals black fruit, such as blackberries, intermingled with gentle spices, such as

black pepper, damp earth, notes of native forest and a hint of graphite.

Palate: This wine has a firm structure and silky tannins. Its black fruit and spicy flavours, together

with medium to high acidity lend it balance in the mouth and persistence in the finish.

This wine is superb paired with spicy food, such as Indian, Thai, Mexican and Spanish cuisine and

other more complex dishes. It also goes well with semi-ripe cheese and strongly flavoured meat

such as wild boar and venison.
