Cien y Pico, Doble Pasta Garnacha Tintorera Manchuela
From vines reportedly over a century old and planted at an altitude of over 1,000 meters. Glass-staining ruby. Deep, smoky aromas of cherry pit, singed plum, violet and licorice. Sweet, penetrating dark berry flavors stain the palate, given bite by notes of black pepper and bitter chocolate. Smoothes out with air and finishes with impressive cut, length and lingering smokiness. This was made (in part) by a group of young Australian winemakers based in the McLaren Vale. 90 Points.
