Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) Dark ruby color. Intense and complex bouquet combining fruits of the forest and a hint of spice, with a slight depth of floral notes. Dense and delicious in the mouth, where exquisite tannins reveal refined toasted notes acquired from select oak. Balanced complexity and rich flavors provide good length and tempt a pleasant tasting experience.

Winemaker's Notes

"This reflects the vintage in its beefy richness, while it follows Cáceres's modern style in the polish and elegance of its tannin. The fruit develops definition with air, tasting of tiny cherries and red currants. For the cellar, or give it time in a decanter for lamb chops off the grill...91" Wine and Spirits 12/09

    (From 1994 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Rich, smoky, vanilla bouquet. Liquorice notes to concentrate spicy fruit on the palate.
