(2016) Adds a little more fragrance than the Leyda Brisas, a little more soft and briary quality, soft earthiness. There’s a nice orangy freshness to this, and it is bone dry again, with good acidity and a tart cherry freshness. Price for the 2013 vintage.
(2016) Lift and fragrance here, an exotic spice and Sandalwood touch, the fruit bright, touching on minitness, but with a really solid tannin framework. The palate becomes really quite grippy, the tannins sandy and refined, but the sweet fruit in the background, swirling smokiness and an elegant tart cherry edge to the acidity. Price quoted for 2013 vintage - 2014 not in UK at time of writing.
(2016) A fair amount of quality oak, with a nice bacon fat and meatiness that is very expressive. The palate has a smooth ripeness of black fruit, with dry tannins, meaty again, finishes with medium length. The oak perhaps just a little too dominant over the Syrah aromatics.
