Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator 5/31/16
A minerally red, with lots of fresh-crushed pepper notes to the cherry, red plum and currant flavors. Accents of slate show midpalate, leading to a long, savory finish filled with dried herbal details. Drink now through 2018. 4,000 cases made. –KM

88 pts Stephen Tanzer's IWC (ST)
(aged for six months in new and second-fill French oak barrels): Bright red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of plum, redcurrant, smoke, chocolate and menthol. Supple and sweet but with sound acidity giving the plummy fruit good vinosity for a wine from a warm climate. Smooth on the finish. -- Stephen Tanzer



Winemaker Notes

Alluvial soils irrigated with water from the Andes Mountain Range. 950 meters above sea level. Vineyard conducted by VSP trellis system, thinning of early shoots to regulate the production and allow a correct positioning of these, rational thinning of the clusters, morning sunlight reception to complete its maturation, analytic control of physiological and polyphenolic maturity, planned harvest based on grape tasting in the vineyard. Double selection of grape clusters and berries, destemmer, gentle crushing, free run juice, fermentation with autochthonous yeasts, prolonged maceration based on tastings, spontaneous malolactic fermentation, soft pressing of pomace, auto clarifying racking, natural stabilization, bottling in winery.
