Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) the 2012 growing season was one of the most stellar in decades. Vineyards were at their maximum potential. Ideal weather during bud break and fruit setting allowed grapes to mature as close to perfect as we’ve seen in some time.

    rocio and I both liked it very much; not a wonderful nose, almost sour but tastes different than it smells; lots of dark fruit in the front, gets spicy after that, decent finish; seems to be better than 87 pts, well balanced and sophisticated
