From the bottle:
"Bodega Cyan started practicing sustainable viticulture in 2003. Made from 80+ year old dry-farmed bush vines, hand harvested and aged 24 months in French and American oak. A big Toro: chewy, dark, concentrated and intense with layered black fruit, rosemary and other well rounded tannins with a warm finish. Serve with dry aged beef, leg of lamb, or smoky cheeses.The 2004 Cyan La Calera Toro is a very aromatic wine featuring dark fruit, mint and dried herbs. The wine tastes dense and delicious with lots of rich dark fruit, dried herbs and spice. This is a substantial wine with chewy tannins and I love it. It ends dry with a very long finish. Fantastic!
