Pintas 2008

All grapes are carefully selected and foot trodden in granite lagares during the maceration and fermentation process. The wine is then aged for 20 months in 70% new and 30% second passage French oak barriques.

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied and deep, with spicy and floral aromas and flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate. Ripe, round and balanced with notable acidity, fine tannins and a long, persistent finish.
