Finísimo 2009 by Viña Canepa

IMG_0590Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 85% Syrah 15%

Very good plus wine with dark ripe plums and ripe black raspberries with baking spice, white pepper, cigar box and a mineral note. The medium tannins are grippy and mature giving balance with the medium acidity. The wine has good complexity and medium plus fruit intensity. The finish is medium plus. Drink now will improve for 1-2 years and drink well for 7 more.
