De Martino Single Vineyard Malbec Carmenere las Cruces Case of 6 Bottles 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Reinventing Chile, and creating wines that are a true reflection of their origin is what De Martino wines are all about. The grapes that go into this wine come from the Alto de Piedras sector in the vineyards located in the Maipo Valley. Year after year this special and unique piece of land produces one of the best examples of this varietal in Chile. This exceptional vineyard is planted on soils of alluvial origin mixed with gravel, clay, and sand with excellent drainage and low fertility that naturally controls vineyard growth. The grapes are hand picked late in the season to ensure an aromatically ripe wine with abundant high-quality tannins. This Carmenere is deep red - nearly black - in color, and the nose is elegant, ripe, and complex. It is big-bodied on the palate with a long finish.

San Martiño Winery & Vineyards opened its doors in the spring of 2004. We are a small family-owned winery specializing in handcrafted wines using modern techniques but with a traditional “soul” borne in the fertile lands of northwestern Spain. The village of San Martiño, (see picture below), located in the mountains of the Galician region, has been making traditional wines for hundreds of years. It was at the village of San Martiño that our love and knowledge of wine and wine making techniques started. Through years of watching and helping our family in the vineyard we came to appreciate the special relationship between people, their land and the food they grow. Our Texas winery was created by borrowing from the traditions of the San Martiño village and its people, the tenacity and resolution of our family and learned modern wine-making techniques. Our heritage is rich and although we are not Texas largest winery, we aim to be the best!. Here you can watch us grow and participate with us as we travel together in this adventure because we know that without you we are not. So come by and visit with us while relaxing with a glass or bottle of one of our wines. Bring a picnic and enjoy a break from the rat race. Read less

Tasting Notes:

The nose is fresh and intense with notes of white pepper and plum, which are balanced by sweet aromas of vanilla. A pleasant acidity fills the palate, with well-structured tannins. The finish is long, with red fruit flavors and hints of vanilla.
