DESCRIPTION:
Grapes are sourced from five vineyards with sandy loam soils, ranging in elevation 3,300 - 5,000 feet above sea level. Vista Flores vineyard has flavors of spice, red fruits and minerality. La Consulta adds black fruit and mid-palate weight while Altamira's fruit has notes of violets. Eugenio Bustos vineyard offers racy acidity and floral notes while adding to the violet color. Gualtallary vineyard, at the highest altitude, brings deep purple color and additional floral and black fruit notes balanced with acidity.Intense red garnet color pairs with aromas of violet, jasmine, and ripe red fruits. The palate opens with notes of plums and toffee and gives way to hints of almonds and cinnamon. Round tannins lead into a ripe fruit finish.

Dark plums, dried blackberries, cassis and currant bush make for a very fruity but reserved expression on the nose. Full body, juicy but structured tannins and a medium-chewy finish.
