Bright, fresh and unique Spanish red blend
Pleasant bouquet of violets, red fruits and herbs. Fresh and fruity on the palate with cranberry, pomegranate and sour cherry in harmony with fine tannins. A stony minerality amplifies the freshness with nuances of dried fig, nutmeg and white pepper on the finish. Decant for 90 mins.
