"B Crux", will age in oak barrels, 50 per cent new and 50 per cent second year, for 12 months and in bottles for a minimum of six months.
Rich and aromatic, with layers of leather, tobacco and smoke mixing with dark plum and black cherry notes. Fine-grain tannins add weight, as smoky fruit lingers on the finish. Tempranillo, Malbec and Merlot.
Opens with horsey, leathery aromas that are funky and wild, but are surrounded by solid berry-fruit scents. Picks up steam on the palate, which is easygoing, solidly built and just firm enough. Tastes of blackberry, cola, spice and chocolate, then finishes smooth and creamy.
The 2008 B Crux is composed of 60% Tempranillo, 30% Malbec, and 10% Merlot aged for 12 months in 50% new French and American oak and bottled without filtration. Expressive aromas of wood smoke, violets, mineral, black cherry, and blackberry inform the nose of a layered, ripe, concentrated wine with impeccable balance and length. It is likely to evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now.
