Tasting Note:

From selected parcels of the estate’s finest vines in La Hora, that average 80 years old. 100% Tinto Fino. Aged for on average 30 months in new French oak barrels. Utterly stunning, this truly has it all. Complex, brooding, sultry and very very sleek this is a tour de force in precision winemaking. Silky, powerful fruit tannins surround a plethora of dark fruit, mulberry, kirsch, crème de mûre and sweet minerals; bright, uplifting and complex with secondary notes of smoke, herb and tar. Amazingly intense and full of drive, but with absolutely no heaviness. A superb PS.
