12 месяцев в баррике французском не новом. Теплый тон, аромат сложный: сафьян, немного джемовые ягоды, не острые пряности,вишня. Мягкие танины, округлое, среднетелое, мягкое: очень мягкая умеренная кислотность. Можно и даже лучше подавать немного охлажденным

Perfumed red & black Forrest fruits with a light touch of graphite & spice, fresh and fruit forward. In the mouth there are soft red fruited tannins.

Had 2 bottles. On heavier side of Rioja (which was desired in this case). Rich, nice mouthfeel, well integrated tannins without heavy oak of some Riojas.

Big inky side to Rioja. Mulberry, red floral and spice laden nose. Bold and assertive, but charming, with more black fruit, red floral and spice. 2011
