"This is a firm, very silky red with structure and length. Full but tight and compressed, showing tension and freshness. Delicious now. About 60% new wood aging for a year. Syrah and cabernet sauvignon." Reviewed October 2015

Product Description:

"TASTING NOTES: Rich in minerals and saturated with Mediterranean character, this wine unleashes exuberant aromas of mature fruits and spices. Its concentrated taste enrobed in a fine texture gives it an attractive liveliness, while its rich and mellow yet always-complex palate lasts until the final touch of fruit." - Winery
