Red wines are often aged in oak barrels to enhance their complexity and aging potential. The diversity and depth of red wines, along with their ability to pair with a wide variety of foods, ensure their continued popularity among wine enthusiasts and collectors.

Critical Acclaim

Darker, riper fruit notes dominate the bouquet: black and red fruits with some typical violet and blueberry grace notes. It's a bright, fresh, tightly-focused wine with terrific line and length. Full-bodied, with abundant fleshy extract and tannin structure providing appropriate grip. This seems a riper style and very good indeed.
