Description

Brilliant red purple inked color. Packed with aromas of black and white spices, red pepper and grassy notes, ripe red and black fruit with light tobacco and bitter chocolate hints. Balanced and elegant, with a velvety texture, red fruit and cacao flavors aftertaste. Showing a medium body, with a round mid palate and a long finish, on a smoky spicy texture. To express the terroir of Apalta is our mission; so our winemaking philosophy remains very natural and we adhere to minimal intervention. Our key points are 100% hand harvesting, strict fruit selection, gentle extraction methods and a judicious use of oak to preserve the fruit but integrate the complexity that a wine of this quality deserves. There is no clarification and a very light filtration. We create natural wines that are a true expression of their origin. Accolades WS 92 Dense and flashy, displaying a toasty frame of fine tannins, with grilled herb and baking spice notes to the racy cassis, kirsch and plum skin flavors. Well-cut, with ample acidity and a minerally finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,800 cases made. -NW, Wine Spectator, Score: 92
