Tasting Notes :
Color – Deep, intense ruby red.
Nose – Fine, elegant and complex, with a blend of black fruit and coffee aromas.
Mouth – A very rich attack followed by a quite mature consistency and silky tannins. Fine, precise woody mouth aromas. An exceptional Madiran, powerful and complex, with unusual potential.
This wine can very easily be kept for 7 to 10 years.
