Vintage 2015 | cedar and red fruit. Awesome balance. Lots of potential.

Cigarbox. Needed air. 2015, but opened up beautifully. Super Bordeaux in style. Amazing.

Deep Ruby, aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice and oak. 4 grape blend from some of CVNE's best vineyards in the Rioja Alta (85% Tempranillo, rest Garnacha, Mazuelo & Graciano), aged in both French and American oak for 24 months. On the palate flavors of blackberry and currants with licorice, vanilla, tobacco & toasty oak tones. Soft full ripe tannins, wonderful balance, lively acidity on a long finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Very nice!

Inte första gången jag dricker Imperial och fler tillfällen kan det nog bli. 15 GR kan lagras ytterligare.
