Tasting Notes: A blend of all five Bordeaux varietals and aged in French oak for 18 months, the Sin Cera is an irresistible femme fatale that jumps out of the glass with potent, yet graceful, feminine aromas of baked cherry and blackberry fruit, plum preserve, cooking spice, sweet licorice, vanilla, toasted oak and holds your attention through to the equally seductive, fine tannin and similarly flavoured palate. Warm, round and rich, this gorgeous blend sits beautifully in the mouth and never feels heavy or overstays its welcome thanks to lingering acidity which keeps the palate fresh and focused. Ready to be enjoyed today or hold for another 3-4 years. Drink now-2016.
