Tasting Notes: Deep red color with dark purple hints. Dense nose full of black and red fruit aromas such as plums; dry tea leaves and tobacco flavors. Good tannic structure. Concentrated body with balance and length. Round mid palate with a long lasting finish.
Galaxy Notes: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon; 9% Cabernet Franc. Hand-harvested from the Lapostolle Apalta Vineyard. MADE WITH ORGANIC GRAPES. All fermentations were made with wild yeast in barrels, where the wine stays for 12 months, ageing patiently. There is no stabilization, no clarification and a very light filtration prior to bottling.
