Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Incredible aromas if ripe black cherries, vanilla, toasted bread, herbs, and exotic spices.
Palate Wonderfully complex with flavours of black cherries, oak, vanilla cream, warm spices and herbs of Provence. Juicy and fruity on the finish ending with a creamy flourish. A top class Rioja.
Colour Dense deep purple with a ruby red rim.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 94 Points Deep crimson coloured, it has more complex perfume than the Pujanza cuvee. Aromas of sandalwood, graphite espresso, Asian spices, lavendar, and wild black fruits lead to a round, voluminous, concentrated palate with layers of flavour, incipient complexity, and enough grained tannin to evolve for 3-5 Years
