The 2010 Quimera is a blend of 27% Malbec and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon alongside Petit Verdot and Merlot, raised in 40% French new oak for 14 months, the remainder one year old. It has a complex, almost “mulchy” bouquet: one that evokes undergrowth and tertiary aromas that are well-defined and cerebral. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly chewy tannins surrounding a core of blackberry laced with licorice and a hint of star anise. The finish is focused and taut, bestowed with an extremely fresh citric finish. Old World meets New – with style. Drink 2014-2022.

An elegant red, displaying racy cassis, raspberry and spice notes backed by fine tannins and fresh acidity, as hints of dried flowers and spice highlight the minerally finish. Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2017.—N.W.
