(From 2011 Vintage) Bright red-ruby. Nobler on the nose than the Altagracia, displaying scents of currant, licorice and tobacco lifted by a sexy floral topnote. Broad and supple in the mouth, but with lovely definition and power to the flavors of plum, currant, brown spices and brown sugar.
(From 2005 Vintage) The fruit was hand-picked under lights during the cool hours of the night, hand sorted, fermented and macerated in small tanks, and then aged in new French oak barrels for 26 months. Notes winemaker Françoise Peschon: The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of great purity and strength, with abundant silky tannins enveloping the sweet fruit and mineral core. It is vibrant, authentic and intense - less fruit driven, more earth driven, it is a sophisticated wine of place.
