About This Wine

"This is a stunner that is remarkable for this price. In fact, it is probably too good ..."

Intense and shiny cherry red colour. Outstanding fruity expression -plum, fig, berries- intense balsamic aromas (mentholated) and perfectly integrated wooden notes. Soft and silky on the palate, with elegant ripe tannins and a wide pleasant aftertaste.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2013 Hecula, which comes from 60- to 80-year old non-irrigated vines planted in pure limestone soils, is a cuvée of 12,000 cases. The wine has fabulous texture, a deep ruby/purple color, plenty of chalky minerality mixed with blue and black fruits. The wine is rich, concentrated, quite savory and mouthfilling. This is a stunner that is remarkable for this price. In fact, it is probably too good, because most people that spend $24 would never believe a wine could be exceptional. But this certainly is. Drink it over the next several years.
