A red wine of noble appearance, intense colour of elegant cherry-red or very ripe plum, dark and rather dull, as is usual in mature crianza wines.
In the nose, a concentration of very ripe fruit of thick texture. Black plums, blackberries and dried figs. Its aromatic complexity is revealed gradually, with a variety of well combined shades. The aromas of various spices, especially black pepper, walnut and vanilla. All of these features enhanced by the use of excellent oak barrels which add a complexity to the overall aroma, which however, do not hide the effect of the wood itself, which rounds off and blends aromas and flavour.
In the mouth, after the initial aromatic complexity, this wine is full-bodied, tasty and well structured. Perfect balance between smoothness, acidity and tannins, the latter of which are mature but firm, coming as they do from grapes well matured by the sun. Aftertaste is ample and long, with a clean, aromatic ending.
A great wine. With character, potent and fine.
Optimum consumption: Already a great wine, it is endowed with a long life which maintains its quality and may even improve it with time.
