Not as expressive as other Astrales wines, but still very rich and bruising, with a smooth, lush, wonderful mouthfeel and attractive aromas. Concentrated but not as voluminous as many RDD top-rate wines, with flavors of fig, wild berry, chocolate and pepper. Lots to ponder here; an excellent example of what this winery is capable of. Drink 2012–2020.
