Had to try another bottle as I thought previous bottle was mediocre. Deep Ruby with dark fruit aromas, herb and spicy pepper notes. On the palate blackberry and plum flavors with notes of black pepper, cacao and earthy spice. Savory ripe tannins on medium finish ending with fruit and earthy herb notes. Ok for price, but I’d pass after trying 2 bottles. Tasting Sample.

balanced. red cherry, plum, blueberry and black currant, vanilla and coconut milk. Reserva style dry, mid acidity. abv13.5%, focusing more on balance, approachable and good companion with food.

Always been a fan of Reserva. This is an interesting cross of traditional style with earthy leather and modern flair with red fruits. Going to go perfect with a plate of manchego and jamon.
