Nota de Cata
Vista very covered cherry color, intense and with little signs of evolution.
Nariz The nose is very expressive with notes of licorice, cinnamon and black pepper, where the long aging in wood barely perceived, thanks to its great complexity and concentration of ripe fruit.
Boca The palate is fresh, with polished tannins very nice, with good structure, but easy to drink. The finish is long and leaves a slight balsamic memories of great quality.
