Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Dark ruby-red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, mocha and white pepper. Then silky and suave in the mouth, offering an excellent balance of sweet strawberry and more herbal-peppery flavors. Finishes long and smooth, with a peppery nuance and a very intense strawberry presence.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) Still young. Decent bouquet but completelty overdone. Dominated by acidity, hard tannins no backbone and lacking fruit. All out of balance. Really disappointed by this wine.
