The Valbuena offering is a brilliant introduction to the winery. The 2002, from a supposedly average vintage, is purple in color with an expressive nose of pain grille, earth, herbs, lead pencil, and blackberries. It offers layers of ripe fruit, excellent depth and concentration, and enough stuffing to drink well for the next 10+ years.

Cola and plum flavors are fresh and sweet in this firmly tannic red. Has floral and mineral notes, with a juicy finish. Drink now through 2012. 13,000 cases made.  –TM
