We have a cherry-red wine with a high layer and medium density. On the nose it is delicate and fresh, whose first impression reminds us of red fruits. Notes of spices such as cinnamon and toasted aging predominate, reminiscent of cedar, vanilla beans and autumn leaves. On the palate we appreciate a very elegant and well-crafted wood. It is fresh, long, with a very integrated acidity; the tannin begins to polish and makes it delicious and elegant. It has great aging power.
