See Decanter experts' rating, tasting notes and drinking window for Sarmento Vineyard 2009.

Despite its relatively high alcohol, the wine is composed and balanced, thanks to vibrant fruit and acidity, and firm structure. Brown baking spice dominates the nose; the palate has a lush, red fruit and cola entry, mouthfilling middle and a spicy, succulent finish.
