VINEYARD NOTES 2011

July 2010 was colder than normal which delayed seeding by 10 days. September through January continued to be colder than average. We experienced lower average sunshine per day in December and January, which enabled the fruit to keep its freshness, concentration of aromas and elegance. February brought hot and sunny weather, which was very helpful in insuring good phenolic maturation in the late-ripening varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and particularly Carménère. March and April brought rainfall and clouds that encouraged slow maturity of the fruit. In summary, it was a cool year with a higher than normal rain falls and a subsequent low yield. As a result, the wine has great color, acidity, fruit intensity and very good balance.

TASTING NOTES 2011

Very bright and deep ruby red.
Red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) in perfect harmony with secondary aromas from the barrel. The wood perfectly respects the evolution of the aromas of the wine.
A balanced wine that is very subtle with a great aromatic freshness.
A fresh attack, silky, very thin, with elegant and round tannins with long persistence and round tannins. A very harmoniously balanced, elegant wine. The tannins delicately complete the aromatic range but never with excess.

We discover in this wine a multitude of perfumed aromatic ranges while at the same time possessing a beautiful structure without being heavy.
