Tasting Notes

Dark cherry red, medium-high intensity, with highlights of the same hue. Dense, colored legs. Intense, pleasant nose with aromas evoking the ageing process (cedar, cloves, pepper and dried fruit). Aeration reveals the full aromatic complexity of the wine, with spicy and balsamic notes, black fruit jam, plum, hints of tobacco, aniseed, licorice and the mineral touches which characterize Cérvoles. Pleasant, voluptuous mouth feel. On the palate, exceptionally mature tannins, well-integrated. Good acidity adding liveliness and freshness. Very long finish with smoky and spicy hints and notes of toasted almond skin and praline.
