(From 2011 Vintage) Expressive flavors of black cherry, raspberry, violets, and cedar, Quimera is complex, layered and rich.
Aged in 40% new French oak. Pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, violets, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of a complex, intense, layered, spicy, succulent wine with impeccable balance and length. Although it can be approached now, it will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring.
Young. It"s extremely tannic yet. Deserved to be drunk just in 3 or 5 years more.
What a great Costco wine!
