About

96

"Floral and offering up dark berries and dried strawberries. Hints of dried lemon skin. Full-bodied, very powerful and deep in terms of fruit. Chewy tannins yet they're so polished. Goes on for minutes. Best ever."

Product Description:

"Cincuenta y Cinco comes from vineyards planted in 1955 which gently rest on a sea of pebbles, typical in riverbed soils. It is fermented whole cluster at very low temperatures, enhancing the floral characteristics of the wine. Cincuenta y Cinco has the highest amount of tension of all the Chacra wines while it still retains a comfortable ease. There is a wonderful purity in this wine with dried strawberry and iodine. This refined red mixes crushed bilberry and cherry fruit with undertones of smoke, game and mineral. A fine length." - Winery
