(2004 Vintage) deep red, garnet edges - developing bouquet showing spicy oak, balsamic and mocha notes, mint, blackcurrant fruit - earth and savoury fruit on the palate,oak complexity with hints of chocolate, soft, nice balance, good length, well structured tannins.
Wine Enthusiast(2004 Vintage) This is the star of the Cortes de Cima range, a powerful expression of rich fruit, but one tempered with a sympathetic, attractive structure, packed with black berry and ripe plum skin flavors, leaving plenty of tannins, but still finished with acidity and balance – WE July 2008
