90
"(aged for 16 months in a combination of 90 percent French and 10 percent American oak) Deep red. Aromas of dried red berries, cherry pit, pipe tobacco and vanilla; a hint of white pepper adds vivacity. Coats the palate with smoke-accented cherry-vanilla and cassis flavors and shows very good energy and a seamless texture. The smoke and cassis notes carry through a sweet, subtly tannic finish that echoes the tobacco note."

2012 Calma
Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico (CVA)

100% Tempranillo. Organically grown (certified) vines planted from 1984-2002. Tended in red thin clay and sandy limestone soil at 568 m (1,865 ft) elevation.

The wine is made with 15% whole cluster maceration, and 85% de-stemmed and crushed. The must macerates for 7 days at cool temperatures. It ferments in open-top stainless steel tanks for 15 days at 84F to extract more flavor and tannin, followed by a post-fermentation and extended maceration for 7 days.

The wine is aged for 16 months in oak barrels, 90% French and 10% American.
