Tasting Notes

“This is sleek and racy with a polish and beauty that is incredible. Full body, ultra-fine tannins that touch you at the beginning and take you down to a gorgeous depth of fruit. Super. A great single vineyard wine. Drink in 2022..”

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2018

The 2016 Viña del Olivo has to be one of the finest recent vintages of this wine. It's powerful and elegant and has great balance and a lively palate, with focused flavors, great purity and integrated oak. It's very young and seems to have all the ingredients for a long development in bottle. It's tasty, long, very pure and is salty rather than sweet. 13,881 bottles produced.
