- TASTING NOTES: Cherry red color, very vibrant, very attractive. It leaves us expectant before what we are going to feel when we smell and have the wine in our mouths. Deliciously fruity nose. And the fact is that the first thing we are going to capture in this wine is the fruit: cherry, plum, blackberry, blueberry, a slight note of strawberry,... If we delve deeper we will find a floral side, a little liquorice. The spices ceded by the wood during its aging appear afterwards: cloves, pepper, nutmeg, a touch of vanilla, another of cocoa,... The aging is treated with subtlety, with elegance, so that it is one more component of this wine, without highlighting. And to finish his mouth, delicious, perfumed, soft, very long. The wine finally leaves us with a memory of fruits and spices and with the desire to try it again.
