Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) A complex wine with a bouquet of spicy, red berry fruit, showing notes of tobacco and leather. The palate is both creamy and elegant with extremely fine tannins, good intensity and a firm persistent finish. Very stylish, will continue to improve in the bottle for up to 10 years.

    (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
