Slightly candied on the nose with nice blackberry fruit accented by violette pastille, charred wood tones, and freshly turned soil notes. Silky and soft in the mouth with nice balanced structural elements concealed by ripe red fruits that have a slight coulis quality to them. the mid-palate is nicely layered with notes of woodspice, mocha and nutmeg adding some detail. The finish is a bit heavy and shows more pumpkin pie spice. this has a lot of dense fruit to it that emerges as it sits in the glass, along with a noticeably spicy character that may be more appealing to many others than it is to me. 88pts



Tasting Notes:

The 2008 “La Colina” aroma displays earthy notes, dark chocolate, dark berries a mix of cherries and blueberries and light Dundee dust characters. After more aeration, the wine begins to display red cherries with floral herb spices like oregano-thyme. The flavors are sweet and display red cherries, followed by darker cherries, dark chocolate, a sweet floral mix, and a typical earthy character, followed by sweet oak spices. The texture is rich and round and fills the mouth with sweetness. The finish is very long, fruity-earthy, sweet, rich, elegant and displays spiciness.

Harvested October 15th, fermented with 15% whole clusters and indigenous yeast, the wine was aged for 15 months in 28.57% new French oak, 14.29% one year, 28.57% 2 year old and 28.57% neutral. .
