La Capitana Barrel Reserve
La Capitana is named after the tallest palm tree in the LaPalmeria estate. These wines are distinguished by their harmonious balance between rich fruit character and the complexity of aging in French oak barrels. Contemporary and stylish.
This wine starts with a magnificent nose where blackberries, violets and plums introduce the vivid fruit flavors that dance across the palate. Aging in French oak barrels for nine months.

RATING: 88 points
Deep, saturated blackish-ruby hue. Perfumed briar fruit and sweet-vanilla oak nose. A rich entry leads a generous, full-bodied palate with chewy tannins. Ripe, drying finish. A big, oaky fruit-bomb--somewhat Aussie in style. Try with grilled meats.
