Very ripe cherry on cover, with strong purple hues. The nose has a very high intensity of fruit of blackberries, raspberries, blackberries and black licorice, which are combined with toasted and spicy flavors typical of aging in French oak. Its entrance is very meaty and dense, very broad. Stresses its balanced acidity, soft tannins and long aftertaste suggestive, which again shows fruity and spicy notes.

Wine AdvocateEven better is the 2011 Heritage, which is 100% Tinto Fino planted in high elevation vineyards 2,550 feet above sea level. Aged 18 months in a combination of 75% new French and 25% new American oak, the wine boasts a dense purple color along with a big, perfumed bouquet of acacia flowers, lead pencil shavings, blackberries and black currants. With considerable richness and ripeness in its opulent, voluptuously textured style, this terrific wine's purity, subtle use of oak and richness are world-class. Drink this fabulous value over the next 5-7 years.
