A cherry-coloured wine, good depth of colour,
almost opaque, with hardly any signs of evolution.
An intense complex nose, with notes of ripe, dark
fruit, balsamic nuances and a slightly mineral base.
On the palate it is very well structured, with a fresh
sensation and an outstanding concentration of
polished tannins which give a warm, unctuous
mouth-feel with a long, lingering finish in which you
can discover the toasted notes from the cask-ageing
in fine French oak.
A wine with tannin backbone and marked acidity
augur well for good future bottle ageing, very much
in the style of the Riscal wines from the beginning of
the 20th century.
This wine goes well with ham, medium-strength
cheeses, casseroles which are not too spicy, pulse
dishes, poultry, red meat, grilled and roast meat.
