Full bodied and smooth, deliciously ripe black fruits with warming spice.
Tasting Notes: Powerful aromas of cherries, plums, bramble fruits - black fruits with hints of vanilla. The plate is full bodied and 'meaty', brimming with the fruit flavours, vanilla oak with hints of spice. Smooth and beautifully balanced. The finish is long and intense - an excellent Crianza!
