Tasting Notes

Colour A highly intense and deep core of dark cherry with a pinkish edge. Bright and clean.
Nose Complex, with good intensity. Over a background of ripe fruit, one notices notes of cocoa, wild fruit (dark cherries), smoke and liquor. As it stays in the glass, mineral and balsamic notes begin to arise. The wood is well integrated and gives way to the unique characteristics of the wine after aeration, acquiring intensity but maintaining harmony with all of its aromas.
Palate Full of flavour on the attack with a base of wild ripe berries as the principal sensation, similar to a mix of jam, candy and marinated plums. Light, velvety feel, with a liquorice finish.
Food pairing Pairs well with poultry, red meats and lamb.
