Tasting Notes
Upon visual examination the wine is limpid, of an almost impenetrable intense ruby red, with good consistency.
The range of aromas, on the olfactory examination, is broad and complex: floral, fruity, spicy and toasted. Notes of withered red flowers, hints of ripe dark berry fruit reminiscent of blackberry, blueberry and currant. Spicy notes of cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla; toasting of smoked wood and hazelnut. Closure with balsamic nuance.
The sip is supported by an important tannic texture. Slightly aggressive but pleasant tannin. The components are not yet perfectly balanced, they need further refinement, but still a sample with great potential. Good persistence with an aftertaste of ripe fruit and fine woods. Overall a fine quality wine.
It is recommended in combination with meat dishes of the Iberian tradition.
