Tasting notes

Appearance

A clean and transparent wine. Deep and intense red in colour with mid high coating and a slightly purplish edge, which denotes that it successfully maintains its youth in spite of being a crianza.

Nose

Of medium high aromatic intensity. In a still glass are primarily highlighted red fruit aromas, which are perfectly integrated with high roasted aromas from the wood, clean and noble. In a swirled glass the red fruit aromas brought in by the perfect combination of the Mnastrell and Gró varieties are intensified as well as the sweetness brought in by the Syrah. This fruit remains perfectly sustained by the fine aromas of the American oak in which the crianza has matured. A wine with a strong and pleasant aroma. Complex.

Palate

A wine that is pleasant to drink, big bodied, with considerable fruitiness and acidity which is perfectly integrated to the ensemble as well as great astringency, which without doubt signals the presence of ripe tannins which give the wine more smoothness with more time spent in the bottle. A fruity retronasal aspect with a medium and pleasant aftertaste. It can be enjoyed now, although it will undoubtedly improve with time.

Pairing

Iideal companion to cheeses, red meat and game.
