Merlot is the star in this blend! Plum, herbs, and spice. Also a bit floral. 🍃💐

2008 vintage. On the nose, dark luscious fruit, fresh violets, vanilla. On the palate, m+ tannins.

Vino de capa baja, en nariz tras un tiempo muy largo de apertura nos da notas de fruta roja madura. En boca corto y con un final más bien amargo.

Quite strange. With strong acidity, medium tannins, high alcohol.

Not much to enjoy - structure snd tannin but very little fruit; bitter, still tannic. Might improve with more age or more air
