From Rioja, Spain.
Colour: Bright and intense centre with a ruby edge. Very clean.
Nose: The high toast of the French oak imparts a toasted vanilla and chocolate aroma, with touches of coffee, but the entire bouquet is very well balanced, highlighting liquorice and red fruits on top of a bed of spices.
Palate: Flavours of red fruits, liquorice and dark chocolate with a warm and persistent finish.
Food Matches: Recommended with semi-cured cheeses and most types of Spanish tapas.
