Tasting Notes

Dark, deep and powerful yet nuanced and layered. This is full of flavour but delivers it weightlessly and with elegance and refinement. Full of energy, vivid and exciting. Magnificent.

Reviews & Scores

Very dark in color this is classic Volcanic Hill with a subtle perfume and soaring fruit and intensity on the palate. It is beautifully balanced with beautifully integrated soft tannins and a long lingering finish. This is a wine that should be phenomenal in a decade or two and keep for an extremely long time.

TASTING NOTES

A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Wines
