"The 2012 Proprietary Red Altagracia is 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Malbec. A beautiful nose of red and black cherries, blackcurrants, spice box and earth jumps from the glass of this expressive, fragrant, medium-bodied wine that has velvety tannins, a burgeoning complexity and a savory, lush mouthfeel. This is a strong second wine from this famous vineyard. It can be drunk now or cellared for up to 15 or more years. ItÌ¥__Ì¥__Ì¥_?Ì¥_Ì¥_Ì¥Ì´Ì¥_åås pure seductiveness."

Technical Director Helene Mingot notes Ì¥__Ì¥__Ì¥_?Ì¥___Ì¥__?This Altagracia is a generous wine reflecting the exceptional quality of the vintage. The 2012 vintage is balanced and harmonious, offering beautiful ripeness with no excess. The wine reflects the character of the eastern parcels of the Eisele Vineyard, and its fine-grained tannins provide a perfect foil for the intensity and richness of the layered fruit.Ì¥__Ì¥__Ì¥_?Ì¥_Ì¥_Ì¥Ì´?
