Tasting Notes

Colour An intense deep cherry red colour, with purple hues. An excellent brightness in a wine which has not been clarified nor filtered.​
Nose Very complex aromas, with red fruit notes, prunes and fruit compote, with memories of liquorice from the Tinta Fina variety and floral notes from the Merlot variety. Gently toasted and mentholated aromas appear along with an appealing spice and red fruit component which is typical of high quality French wood.​
Palate Powerful in the mouth, full-bodied with very sweet tannins, a good balance in acidity/alcohol content, which prolongs the wine tasting. A wine with a lingering aftertaste.​
Food pairing Recommended for roast dishes, meat dishes with rich sauces, small game, turbot, sea bream, mature cheeses and dark chocolates.​
