A lightly jammy garnacha, offering plenty of fruit with some chocolate. It’s full-bodied with some firmness. Nicely layered with a lightly smoky undertone.
Bright violet. Oak-spiced dark berries, licorice and mocha on the nose; a smoky nuance emerges with air. Broad, sweet and well-concentrated, offering cherry-vanilla, cola and blackberry flavors that show no rough edges. Closes with repeating oak-spice character and strong tenacity and supple tannins lending grip. There’s a lot of oak here but there’s plenty of fruit as well. Drinking window: 2022 – 2027
