Grapes from the Tulum Valley are picked at the end of February, the Zonda Valley at the end of January and the Pedernal Valley at the end of April.

The wine is described as "full-bodied, deep red/purple with complex aromas and notes of red fruit and chocolate". It has an rrp of £11.99 and is sold through UK agent Chalié Richards.
