Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Deep ruby color, complex nose from aromas of red fruit, spices and garrigue along with subtile notes of black olive. The mouth shows some notes of smoked dark fruits, pepper meats, graphite and big minerality.Very accessible now, but also has the balance to hold for a 10 years.
