The wine is microvinified in new oak barrels. Grapes are selected by hand and barrels are filled by gravity and the maceration process happens in three stages: cold maceration (10-12 days); alcoholic fermentation (14 days); post-ferment maceration until it reaches the 45 to 60 days required to complete the total process. 100% en French new oak barrels during 18 months.
A big, grippy red, with dense, powerful and lavishly spiced flavors of blackberry, dark plum and dried cherry. Creamy midpalate, presenting a long, rich finish filled with pepper and cocoa powder notes. Drink now through 2021. 600 cases made.
