The wine has a beautifully intense colour. The nose offers up a subtle combination of red fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine reveals fine, silky tannins with an elegant, velvety finish that lingers in fresh style. A wine best drunk now.
The winter was dry and mild, with a water deficit that lingered until the spring.
Hot temperatures in April deteriorated in May, with consistent rainfall in June, July and early August. The sun returned in late August. September was dry with a few showers.
QualitY OF VINTAGE
Despite a difficult climate, this vintage was a success thanks to the selection work performed in the vines and during the sunny period of September and October. Its aromatic potential was preserved, and well balanced. The cabernet revealed dense yet supple tannins.
