Тинто Фино (Темпранильо) 100%
14 мес в бочках из французского и американского дуба
Ароматика интенсивная
Вишня, слива, ежевика, мокрый асфальт.
Танины мягкие, шелковистые. Хорошая кислотность.
Во вкусе подвяленные ягоды, специи.
Понравилася баланс.
16/20

Had this with the tasting menu @ Zuberoa. Was recommended by the sommelier there after I initially chose something else. Will be looking for this when I get back to Canada

Complex, interesting, rich and elegant. Can't get much better than this in my modest opinion. One could get lost in the beautiful color with a prominent violet rim. The nose: caramelized dark berries, oak, tobacco, geranium, calla flowers, herbs, wet limestone... The taste : really complex but masterfully structured with a long opulent aftertaste. Caramelized dry blueberries, blackcurrants, leather, smoky, oaky, herbal, floral ... Earth, wind and fire singing in a funambulist's line inside a cathedral ... Overwhelming, unique.Risky but elegant. Decadent but futurist ... It left me puzzled and astounded. A truly amazing creation or experiment ??? That wouldn't let you indifferent.

Very restrained on the nose. Faint aromas of violets and smoke. The pallet opens up with dark berry fruit flavors with notes of baking spices. Modern, harmonious and sleek. Fully bodied with chewy tannins.
