Of an elegant red cherry color with violet touches, this Merlot is outstanding for its fruitiness, specially black fruits such as blueberries and mulberries. It shows a perfect balance, with a silky and fresh texture, medium acidity, docile and velvety tannins. Good volume in mouth that unfolds into a long and elegant ending. Quite a complex wine for the given price, we recommend decanting for at least 30 min.

After a careful manual harvest, elaboration of the wine began with seven days of cold maceration at 50°F. Then the juice is fermented during 9 to 10 days at an average temperature of 79 º, using different strains of yeast. A 20 days post fermentative maceration enhances the flavors and bouquets, as well as smoothing the tannins. The wine matures in French oak during 10-12 months to be subsequently clarified before bottling it.
