Great with TexMex. Black pepper flavours & spice is stronger after refrigeration.

Fat and quick legs for a red; smell: leather, coffee beans, espresso, tobacco shop, BBQ; taste: pomegranate, light cherries, plums. Medium finish. Nice kick at the end.

For this price i would expect something more balance between oak flavors and fruit ( bacon and smokiness def too predominant), i would like to try this wine with some aging and see if this wine shows more integration between oak and fruit

Clear, deep purple colour.

Clean on the nose with leather, smoked bacon, blackberry and blackcurrant aromas of medium intensity.

Dry, medium acidity and medium-high tannins. Medium bodied with a very long finish.

Very good quality.
