Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Tried this over a year ago after I got a taste, so I bought one for the cellar. Dark red with big berry flavors and complex spice. On the palate rich ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with sweet spice, well balanced with acidity. Tannins are approachable but the wine is still very young, lingering finish ending with oak notes. Still needs time but if you have a reason to drink something great, open a bottle. A bit pricey but worth it for special times.

Was lucky enough to get a taste of this wine, really liked it and bought one for the cellar. Very dark red with full rich berry flavors and complex spice. On the palate ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with savory spice on a well balanced frame. Tannins are approachable but the wine is still very young. The finish is long ending with oak notes. I should wait but had a reason to drink something great. A bit pricey but worth it for special times.

Was lucky enough to get a taste of this wine. Very dark opaque red with full rich berry flavors with complex spice. On the palate ripe blackberry and cherry flavors with savory spice on a well balanced frame. Tannins are approachable but the wine is still very young. The finish is long ending with oak notes. Wait on this one. A bit pricey but in 10 years this will be done gem. Tasting Sample.

Best Spanish wine for me. All characters are well mixed as one. Well match with fruits as well as meat.
