Deep, black cherry color. Aromas of red fruit embodied with toffee oaky hints from the aging in French barrel revealing a sweety and fruity wine on the mouth. Reminiscences of ripen fruit and liquorice. It offers a pleasant and soft aftertaste.

This is the kind of wine that is making folks flock to Spain. It is so nicely drinkable with New World sensibility yet Spanish elan.

Comes together very nicely; with a certain sense of comfort.See detailed press review
