Tasting Notes

It is tough to find a more expressive site than Casa de Vinas, especially from the great vintages like 2013. The wine is exploding with aromatics of coffee, chocolate covered cherries, farmstead blueberry preserves, and highlighted by wild red berry and herbal undertones that give the wine depth. The wine is rich and dense with the classic gritty texture provided by the gravelly soils of this amazing vineyard. Many great years left in this wine. It will be fun to see how long it will lay down. Decant, serve slightly below room temp.

Production
