Tasting notes

Sight: This wine has a plump red color with some bricks colors that denote evolution. Legs linger in the glass, going down slowly showing its viscosity. It is a bright and clean wine.

Nose: We can find mint, eucaliptus, some menthol and anis aromas. It is a complex blend where we can also find a little green pepper scent.

Mouth: The best French oak barrels grant a bouquet to this complex blend that is amazing on the palate due to its elegance, long finish and good estructure.
