From Jancis Robinson's review:
'Single vineyard in the Garzón subregion. 15% barrel aged but not new.
Inky black core and dark purple rim. Spicy dark wild berries. Very intense but not over-sweet on the nose. Just slightly floral. Lightly and nicely dusty. Super-dry finesse and paper-fine but compact tannins. Dark and savoury but fluid. Lovely texture. Fresh and long and very elegant. Beautiful balance.'

Vineyard: Valle de los Manantiales (“Valley of Springs”)
Region: Garzón - Maldonado
Size: 42 acres
Soil: Deep, sandy-loam texture with a high degree of decomposed granite
Slope: 25% slopes, facing the ocean
The steep hills of the Valle de Manantiales vineyard in Garzón meet the cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean, enhancing the usually subdued floral notes of Tannat. Grown in the coolest of the family vineyards, this wine is elegant, while maintaining a good structural backbone and bright fruit notes that complement the floral character.
