Tasting Notes

Intense ripe cherry color that shows the ripeness and the hot vintage.

Black ripe fruit and elegant toasty notes in the nose at the beginning, the aromas of black pepper, chocolate, peanuts and liquorice appear after the first approach. Better expression with a Bordeaux shape glass and after breading.

Juicy and meaty in the mouth with a great structure and acidity. Very elegant. A gastronomic wine with many options for pairing with. Best, in our opinión, for consuming after summer 2019
