I was quite impressed by the harmony of the 2017 Finca San Martín, which shows remarkable integration of all its components, good ripeness without any excess and integrated oak (it matured in 60% new American and 40% second use French barriques for 16 months with three rackings) with fine tannins and a clean and precise finish. Great quality for the price. Outstanding for the adverse conditions of 2017. 180,000 bottles produced.

A red with plum and chocolate, as well as cedar and butter. It’s medium-to full-bodied with soft, integrated tannins and a focused, fruity finish. Better in a year or two.

This red has subtle flavors yet good density, with black cherry, licorice, leafy and mineral notes. The smooth, polished texture is supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Should become more expressive with time. Drink now through 2024. 425 cases imported.
