"This has a very rich & fresh array of ripe dark berries & plums, earthy notes & attractively spicy oak influence. The palate has a very sleek, fresh & enlivened feel with lots of energy & depth. Great tannins. Drink or hold". ---James Suckling

Product Description:

From the Winemakers' Website: The grapes are sourced from vineyards planted by Tomás Esteban and are more than 25 years old, yielding a production of 4,000 kg per hectare. They are totally free of any artificial fertilizers or systematic chemical treatments. The harvest is in the last week of September and the first week in October. The fermentation process is very gentle without intensive extraction, in stainless steel tanks with a capacity of 20,000 kg. During production no enzymes or yeasts are used that do not come naturally from the grapes themselves.
