Description

Mild and a bit rainy autumn. Soft winter with heavy rain in February and March. Mild and heavy rainy April. Sprout late, in the third week of April. Heavy vegetative growth. Fresh and rainy May, flowering during the third week of June, with a rate of curd lower than other vintages. Fresh and with a little rain in July and August. Veraison in the third week of August, which extends to early September.

The maduration runs properly during the first fortnight of September, and abundant rainfall during the rest of the month. October shows fresh nights that allowed us to reach a correct phenolic and aromatic maturity. The harvest began on October 15th, with soft temperatures and the absence of rain, the fruit was picked up with almost perfect sanitary conditions.

Tasting Profile

Nose
In the nose, there is a predominance of fruit aromas (blackberry, cranberry and wild forest fruits) over the notes of oak, perfectly integrated, which reminds one of cedar and tobacco.
Palate
In the mouth, it is serious and lively with intensity and great balance. An expansive palate combines fresh fruit and an elegant structure for a wine with great ageing potential.
