The most impressive wine tasted out of more than 200 at a recent visit to the Valle de Guadalupe. A big and rich wine without a doubt, but what impressed the most was the vibrancy and tension present here. The mouth-watering acidity and fine grained tannins provide beautiful balance to the loads of dark brooding fruit with a pleasant kiss of oak. Their commitment to bio-dynamics is no doubt paying dividends here. 250 cases total production.
