Positives: Firm tannins follow dark cherry, blackberries, blackcurrants, turn tamarind, cassis, star anise, mocha, vanilla, dried herbs, eucalyptus, cinnamon, cloves, leather, turmeric, pencil shavings and tobacco leaves.
Thanks to the winery’s resident sommelier; Juan Nunez-Sanchez, for selecting this wine for my beef tenderloin steak dinner.
Ageability: Drink now or over the next 7-10 years on its own or pair it with medium rare beef tenderloin steak.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
