"Dense and rich-tasting, with a muscular mix of dark currant and black olive flavors that are supported by firm tannins. Cocoa powder and slate notes fill the finish, along with peppery hints. Drink now through 2022. 10,000 cases made. "
This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes —a clear expression of a cool year—intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety’s great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers. Ultra is an elegant wine with refined tannins and good persistence. Therefore, we recommend 30-minute decanting (to increase oxygenation) for full display of delicious flavors and aromas. Serve at 59°-63°F (15°-17°C) with casserole or not too elaborate red meat dishes or just enjoy with ripe cheese. Store in a cool (<59ºF; <15ºC) and dry place, protected from direct light exposure.
