On the nose; ripe, ruby, dark currants. Blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, plum and blue fruit hues. Sweet dark, rich soil and tarry notes, black licorice, some pepper, light herbaceous notes, spice and dark fresh lavender and violets.

The body is medium full. The tannins are firm, sticky and a touch meaty. Dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, dark cherries with strawberries haunting in and out on the palate. Dark rich soils, sweet tarry notes, black licorice, medium dark spice, cinnamon, clove, cinnamon, vanilla, soft leather, touch of herbaceousiness, tobacco leaf, crushed dry rocks, loamy dry soils, dark fresh red florals with violets. Round beautiful acidity and a rich, elegant, polished finish.

Photos of; a beautiful shot of the coastal range, road sign with the latitude location of their vina, my wife’s Hollywood pose after she has done two Viña tastings and the sheep animals in their lobby.

Jalapeño, white pepper, juicy black cherries and dried potpourri. Medium minus tannins at the back. Bright acidity.

16/20 (91/100)

Строгий пряно-ягодный аромат, выраженный, узнаваемый, полный. Узнаваемый, много шоколада, пряностей. Красивое, не алкогольное, структурированное вино с потенциалом.

Some intense savory notes that I didn't find particularly pleasant.

Meh, a little too plummy and flabby. Might have been warm at the vendemia festival
