This is a downright sticky wine. It holds onto the inside of your mouth, which is only a problem if you don't have some water to wash it the rest of the way down... but don't do that in a hurry. The flavor develops through figs and olives while it hangs out there. Almost definitely a wine that I like better for being a smoker.


Winemaker's Notes:

VINIFICATION: Destemming and crushing followed by maceration and fermentation for an average of 7 days in vertical steel vats. Controlled and complete malolactic fermentation is followed by 12 months’ ageing, 85% in steel or concrete vats, and 15% in wood. Bottled from December of the year after harvesting. IMPRESSIONS Color, deep ruby red; scent, intense complex, matured red fruit, persistent; cleanly- flavoured, deep, full, round and harmonious with a hint of red fruit, redcurrants, tobacco andliquorice at the end defined aromas of blackberries, black cherries and distinct spicy hints. The style is a blend of modern and traditional, approachable and drinkable yet full-bodied, perfectly reflecting the grape variety. Drink now or lay down for 3-5 years.
