About The Wine

Tasty, expressive with a very tannin feeling that will improve with bottle time. An ideal accompaniment for dishes of strong red meats, game and mild cheeses.

Sight: Intense cherry red with medium to high opaqueness. It is clean and bright. Brick and rust undertones appear on the hedge of the glass as a result of ageing in high quality woods.

Nose: Initially the most intense aromas are cooking, spices (cinnamon, cumin, vanilla…) that give way to more intense aromas of black and red fruits. Some hints of latic aromas and very clean leathers appears together hints of toffee, cocoa and a touch of animal and mineral tone.

Mouth: The first sensation is velvety, very elegant and delicate and then it opens up into a consistent base of very ripe tannins produced by the right evolution in the bottle. The acidity blends in perfectly with reminiscence of ripe red and blacks fruits, vanilla, cinnamon, toffee, cocoa, tobacco and exquisite flavour of clean leather.
