Aged red wine 2018

TASTING NOTE
Intense garnet red colour. Initial aromatic expression offers notes of forest herbs, coriander and candied red fruit. The subsequent aromatic hints of laurel, ground cinnamon, pepper grains, slate and roasted rind appear almost immediately, offering a good combination of primary and aging flavours. The palate is warm and alive, with very well balanced aspects of acidity, body, flavour, tannic structure and palate expression. It also conveys notes of cherry jam, syrup, cocoa and plums in brandy that slowly dissolve in a generous after-taste.

Alcohol: 15%
