Rather restrained on the nose with subtle aromatic wood and dried floral top notes, this is fairly reticent but has slow-to-emerge dark fruit, soft notes of chocolate savings and some minty tones. Very easy on entry but the tannins assert themselves pretty quickly. They’re a bit drying and poke through the fruit a bit. The mid-palate shows some rich black cherry notes with spice tones accentuated by the spice of the tannins. The finish has a vanilla streak, and is quite long with a little cedary element and excellent persistent to the dark fruit. Not my style but well done. 90pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Clones 667 and Swan are combined in this La Encantada bottling, aged in a combination of both new and used French oak barrels.The result is a plush wine that balances brilliant raspberry-like fruit tones with a deeper, darker, cherry-based note. There are floral and spice elements as well, notably violet and clove, as well as a smokiness and vanilla component from ageing in French Oak barrels. Very nice now, this wine should only improve across the next three to four years.
