Ruby red in colour with russet hues. Complex in the nose, good intensity, balsamic, spicy, leathers, tobacco; all of this over a delightful candied fruit backdrop. A very enticing combination. In the mouth: elegant, tasty, highly aromatic, voluptuous tannins still present in the classical style and lasting through the aftertaste. Pair with roasted red meats, game, cured, intense and spicy cheeses.
Dark garnet. Ripe red and dark berries, smoky oak, coffee and a hint of vanilla on the fragrant nose. Smooth and broad on the palate, offering pliant, smoke-accented cherry-vanilla and black currant flavors that tighten up and turn spicier through the midpalate. The spicy nuance adds lift to a smooth, smoky finish that features velvety tannins, a touch of coconut and a strong echo of jammy red berries.
This supple red offers dried cherry, dried herb, tea and forest floor flavors, a mix of candied fruit and savory elements. Plump, with gentle tannins and orange peel acidity. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. Drink now. 220,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
