Winemaker's notes:

It shows deep violet colour. Intense on the nose with plenty of ripe black cherries, dried prunes and dark chocolate all speaking of very ripe grapes. Bit of smoke and oak to add complexity. Dry on the palate, medium bodied with good tannic grip, evident acidity levels and plenty of black fruits on the palate with hints of jam as well. Quite a different style than 2017 which was leaner and fruitier, this one shows a bit more opulence and ripeness with slightly more evident oak touch. Needs time to open.

Combining with food:

Teran is a perfect companion to grilled meet, pasta with meat sauces, hard and soft cheeses. Dare to pair it with the blue fish, as tannins are on the lower side. At overall, it is rather universal food companion and can be server to a wide variety of dishes.

Aging potential:

Perfect to drink from 2019 to 2022.
