Winemaker's notes:
Color: Bright and deep red ruby with a purple robe. Nose: Apalta-s vineyard fruit expression as its best. Plums, cherries, blackberries and blackcurrant with sweet spices coming from elegant French oak aromas. Black spices from the Carmenère gives a unique and complex additional Mouth: Powerful and deep structure that surprises. Soft and chewy palate that evolve towards a long and pleasant finish with a very well achieved balance. Service and food pairing. Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16-18. Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

Wine is served in stemware because the temperature at which wine is served can have a profound impact on the tastes and the enjoyment it yields. Wine glasses should always be held by the stem of the glass rather than the bowl since the heat of your hand will quickly warm the liquid.

Дълбок гранатов цвят с пурпурни отенъци. Носът е богат, но сдържан, усещат се различни тъмни горски пловоде - къпини, боровински, черни череши, сливи, обвити от меки земни тонове (пръст). Вкусът е многостепенен. Започва с плодовете, допълва се от леки тютюневи и шоколадови нотки и завършва с лека пикантност на езика. Танините са хармонични. Вино от много висока класа, може би е на края на свежестта си - ако имате, пийте го скоро!
