2014

Wet and mild winter, followed by a hot spring, with an absence of rainfall and some drought, and budding on the vine in the first fortnight of May, with the cycle of a normal  year. Dry and mild summer, without extremes of heat, which delayed the ripening process by at least 15 days compared to a normal year. Very slow but balanced final ripening,  punctuated by spells of rain, with the harvest extending throughout October.

The Wine

Uvas rigurosamente seleccionadas previo a una controlada fermentación. Tras 6 months in barrel, reposa en botella. Muestra una importante capa de tonos cardenal oscuro con ribete morado de juventud; muy limpio y brillante. En aromas buena complejidad de primarios, de frutas rojas maduras ensamblados con especiados terciarios de crianza; regaliz, café, vainilla. Tiene un cuerpo voluminoso e intenso y a la vez alegre y fresco, sujeto por un excelente nivel de taninos. Mantiene un notable paso con taninos dulces y tras sensaciones frutales con toques de madera limpia, conserva
un final largo y persistente.
