Winemaker NotesThis paraje (place) is located at the edge of the Sotillo páramo, at 930 m. of altitude, it is our highest vineyard. In the 80's our father destined this place to a landing strip of small planes, given the height and plain of the land. A controversial idea for the time. The soils of the páramos de Sotillo are limestone soils. The parent rock, at the edges of the páramos, is very close to the surface, with the presence of loose stone that favors drainage and aeration. It is an isolated vineyard, the only one around, like our father with his landing strip, we became adventurers in 2004, the result is a unique blend of Tinto Fino, and Merlot.” Tasting NotesLively, deep, dense red colour that tints the glass and the tears running down its sides. Deep, delicate aromas of wild forest flowers and the fresh breezes of the high plains mingle harmoniously with ripe tropical fruit characters. Mineral touches reminiscent of underground limestone rock come through against a backdrop of spicy and smoky notes. Hints of just-picked grapes appear on the palate along with fresh tannins that are yet to become fine and polished. Mouth-filling on the palate with a fine-grained texture; the full ripeness of the grapes shows through, followed by a long, lingering finish.
