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.
