Tasting Notes: Intense aromas full of fruit notes, red berries, plums but also some
notes of raisins and figs. The Portuguese and American oak barrique notes
appear very well balanced with some coffee and chocolate notes. Overall, a
complex bouquet but very well balanced. In the mouth, it shows big volume and a
complex structure: notes of berry, raspberry and dried fruits combined with firm but
round tannins, adding to this wine smoothness and character. The aftertaste is
very persistent and leaves an enjoyable fruit sensation.
