"One of five varietals in the Limited Edition range is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Edition that, as all the wines here, always contains a small percentage of other grapes, 4% Petit Verdot in this case. The Cabernet comes from their oldest vineyards (ranging from 18 to 22 years of age), and the idea here is to show how five different varieties express the same place. The grapes were picked two weeks earlier than the average harvest date to keep the fresh fruit and herbal character of the grape in the zone. The grapes fermented in stainless steel after a four-day cold soak with a mixture of native and selected yeasts. It went through malolactic and 15 months aging in 225-liter French oak barrels. There's a little more depth and complexity in here compared with the Reserva, with a darker shade of fruit, a similar sleek palate and those peppery flavors in the finish, spicier, with notes of cola nuts. It's also minty and balsamic, only from alluvial soils with slightly older vines, which is translated in the seriousness of the wine. 68,000 bottles are filled between October 2016 and March 2017."
