Dark red color with lively red tints. Complex aromatics of black pepper, ripe fruits, smoked meat, black chocolate and roasted nuts. The palate is rich with delicate tannins and acidity verifying its great capability for aging.
The grapes after being destemmed were firstly cold soaked and then whole berry fermented to dry.
The wine was then racked into new French and American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 24-27 months.
The bottled wine ages for another 24 months before getting available for consumption.
To keep all the richness of color and taste the wine is not processed by intensive filtration or cold.
Ready for drinking now and will last for another 15 years getting more complexity and finesse. Decanting for 1 hour before drinking is recommended.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
