2010 Hommage unfolds with exotic aromas of black cherry, cassis and French plums bolstered by baker’s
spices, iris, fresh pipe tobacco and subtle toasty oak. Aged 20 month in French oak, 78% new. A
label pays homage to Maria Elena Vieira da Silva. Born in 1908 in Lisbon, she moved to Paris to immerse
herself in painting, sculpture, engraving and textile design. Her complex style evolved into a unique
blend of Cubism and Abstract Art: linear compositions of shapes in space, characterized by gentle color
and soft light.
